friends - this is a clear thing , we are all friends, the world is
pink and there are no conflicts (until proven otherwise)
Not really. But at least we're striving for it in our community.
features - is a clear thing to, fedora is a distribution huge amount
of features (perhaps not enough features ;-) we need more).
Again, we try to always introduce new features.
first - there is my first problem. This is like a racing duel with
other distributions. We can not win on all sectors. This is more a

new *feature* in a *community-friendly* way and with *FOSS only*, it's
good, because it means that others are doing the Right Thing (c). ;)
