I'm sorry, but I don't think I'm authorized to say anything more. It isn't
certain the decision is final, but I had to have something so I could work on
software proofreading next week. So this is at least management's working
decision for now.
Could you summarize why if most of the people interested in that
doensn't want to?
Below a comment Ive wrote about it:
Let me summarize the problem, and I want to make the problem explicit
and crystal clear.
In one side, Rebecca and his manager says it wont be repository just
because they said so, no argumentation.
In the other side, all the other distros, community, users and
developers want to use
I can only think of one word in this situation: truculence. Truculence
and lack of will in make things happen, make things correct. Make
things work and make the best for linux. And who is using this
truculence? Novell is using this truculence.
Rebeca saying that its our problem, fix everything else and invert
Earth's rotation but its our problem is a pure truculent answer. It is
clear the lack of tune with the rest of the linux community, not to
mentio pure arrogant position.
Last time you made people swallow the "management preference" of
Novell we ended with an unusable 10.1. Lesson was not learnt?
All I can say is that the management is once again being incompetent
for the task of managing the building of a Linux distribution with
community aid, and the lack of understanding in working together and
addressing all sides needs and wishes.
As Duncan said, I can tell its much easier to simply change the
guideline to something more sensible than invert Earth's rotation.
Sorry if I forgot to address some relevant points (for example how it
was chosen that word instead of repository) but it is clear Novell
people specially amangement created a problem and they are being
incompetent to solve it.
All that said, and seeing a dozen of emails in the discussion (if
there is one, cause Ive heard previously that there wasnt), I would
like to know what is going to be the decision on this? That we should
simply use the word they want it to be swallowed by everyone, or if
there is going to be a discussion on this.
