Given the short shelf-life of a Fedora release and the complication
involved in Software Collections, I'm still not convinced that we
really need this in Fedora. Can you give me a concrete case where
Fedora really needs to be running two different versions of the same
software, in a production environment? Given it's longer shelf life
and different target audience, RHEL is a better candidate -- and the
record, the company I work for uses Software Collections that way.
I'm just having a hard time justifying it in my mind for Fedora.
