Jeff "call-a-black-kettle-black" Spaleta was critical to keeping fedora focused in the early days. He is an expert at raising the bullshit flag and he does it in an interesting, witty, and sometimes cutting way. Without him all of us would need to waste our time doing it.
One of the issues we faced (and still face) is Ubuntu fan boys posting on the fedora lists and causing developer distractions. This also happens on announcements of fedora things---so much so and so systematically that it seemed to be an active Ubuntu marketing technique: "Anywhere the word "red hat" or "fedora" appears, "UBUNTU" must appear also."
Finally, Jeff has taken it upon his shoulders to turn his amazing talent to raising the Ubuntu bullshit flag. The rest of us can sleep easy knowing he is on the job.
Doesn't it sting when he points out those obvious facts that you have been trying so hard to ignore?
