    It's actually every release cycle ever, not just in recent memory, I don't think there's ever been a release without a slip.

    It kinda becomes a philosophical question: if everyone knows the...

    Fedora 21 is the release that incorporates all the change going on under the Fedora.next banner. Those changes are in the way the distro is organized and developed, though. Changes in the QA process...

    eh. it's really not that different on a 'traditional' distribution.

    fedpkg clone (package)
    cd package
    nano package.spec
    (change build config, add .1 to "Release:", add a changelog if you want...

    Er, that's not fucking stupid, you're doing something fairly stupid. You either work within your distribution packaging system or outside it. If you want to use self-compiled libraries, you'd better...

    There was no "badly broken pcre package". The person complaining didn't run "dnf update" and find that some error in the pcre package caused dnf to propose removal of kernel, rpm etc. The person...

    Can I borrow your crystal ball? I'd love to be able to know whether software will be ready by the time not even the *next* Fedora release comes out, but *the one after that*. Which doesn't have even...

    He's running Rawhide - all the packages are versioned .fc21. There's no update testing process for Rawhide. If a build succeeds it goes to the repo. edit: also, there really isn't any packaging bug...

    Scalability is a major concern for RHEL. In RHEL 7 the maximum size for an ext4 filesystem is 50TB; for xfs it's 500TB.

    ext4 is a fully-supported option for RHEL 7 (as xfs was for RHEL 6), the...

    Yeah, that's not quite how it happened. Earlier GNOME 3 releases had a *different* mode called 'fallback' which used gnome-panel; it wasn't really intended as an alternate interface for 'old-school'...

    Android doesn't have an all or nothing system, it has an all or nothing UI representation. The underlying code handles each permission separately. Otherwise App Ops couldn't exist.

    You're, oh, about a decade late to this party. ;)

    That always sounds like the right fix, but it kinda isn't. There are several problems, which mainly boil down to:

    1) Lots of displays lie to...

    It's not quite that clear cut in practice. It's certainly much harder to get them in the EU, but there are patents that have been issued and held up in court in the EU which are 'software patents' by...

    Flash's license doesn't actually allow others to redistribute it. That's why it's not in RPM Fusion. Mandriva used to use a wrapper package to get around that, but it's kind of clunky. I don't know...

    Um. Where 'so many things' is 'click two links that enable the Fusion repositories' (assuming, of course, it's legal for you to do so)? I'm really not seeing the difficulty.

    True. Still, it's the only bug he's ever posted to. And it's not even a bug, it's the package review request for his own piece of software.

    If Michael would actually report problems to us, usefully, with data, we might have a shot at fixing them.
