In case anybody wonders: Pix tried that:
14:23:26 <@ z00dax> | rpmfusion is a waste of time :D
14:23:39 <@ z00dax> | its just an extention of the stupid fedora mindset
14:23:52 <@ z00dax> | so, as far as i am concerned, its a waste of time
This is a free world and forking or having multiple concurrent projects
doing similar things is IMHO a important thing in the open source world
and nothing bad.
So I'd say let's respect z00dax's and other peoples opinions (¹) and doings
and continue with RPM Fusion as planed (²). Maybe sooner or later
a cooperation evolves and a bit later there is another merger.
I agree, but could someone list down what they think is "stupid" of the
"Fedora mindset"? I've made my choice to stick it out with Fedora, but
after dwelling a while in the fedora-devel mailing list, I have to admit
that I DO have my share of misgivings, some of which, hopefully, will be
mitigated by third-party repos like RPM Fusion. Anyway, the point is, no
one improves who's not willing to admit inadequacies or failings. If
there's any point to z00dax's "stupid" comment, I'd like to hear
(¹) -- reminder: please never ever call the guys from rpmrepo (or
stupid or something similar. The people there are important part of the
community and do a lot of good work. It's afaics normal in life that different
groups of people have different options and goals; RPM Fusion and rpmrepo
are just examples for that IMHO.
Amen! It's rather immature and counterproductive to do so, anyway.
