1. Invalid assumption about 'small group of engineers from Fedora'
as if they were working alone in a vacuum. But hey, whatever allows
you to belittle people...

2. You are simultaneously ascribing to Fedora the power
to move the industry despite anything you do, while claiming that they
aren't empowered by you to do so. Given that, why not concentrate your
considerable mailbox filling activities towards whomever has allowed Fedora
the power to move the industry, or whomever you would *like* to empower to
represent you?

This is a development list, after all, not a ranting list.
