    We'll also provide non-workstation desktop spins at the current (or better!) quality, including different desktop technologies like KDE and Xfce. (No one has stepped up to really work on a non-workstation Gnome spin, but that would be possible too.)
    What I am hoping for is a version for the general public that we can recommend to people instead of Ubuntu. Fedora overall feels more solid than Ubuntu now but there are still certain aspects that can get in the way for the general public. An example I can think of is the inability to start Steam in Big Picture Mode on Fedora 20 without first turning off SELinux. Obviously, installing codecs and binary drivers is another major issue for the general public.

    Neither can be solved by Fedora.
    The first (Steam) can only be solved by steam.
    The second (codecs) can only be solved when the legal issues are resolved.

    that's not even remotely related to what i asked about and not really interesting. let's forget i said security is not really important to me for what i want to play with while knowing project is in unfinished state

    i was asking about specific project that is in the works.

    note that this post already states more or less all subproject states, well everything but amount of inclusion in F21

    Korona != Fedora. Konoroa isn't tied to Fedora's legal obligations and policies in any way.
