> It's like saying "No, I'm sorry that the project isn't going the direction you would have liked" to a colorblind person that is trying to explain, why choosing a red on green font is not a good choice for his use case.
It was in response to "I am not very happy to see Fedora going this way."
"I'm sorry the project isn't going the way you like" is a perfectly valid response to "The project isn't going the way I like". What other response do you expect? "Oh, OK, we'll change the project's direction to please one commenter on LWN?" Maybe the direction *should* change, but presumably it's been decided by Fedora contributors on Fedora lists for various good and bad reasons, changing it based on one commenter on a non-Fedora site, no matter how well reasoned the points, would be a strange way to run the project.
