In fairness to Peter, I don't believe his intention (nor did I
perceive it as such) was for a flame war.
Nor was it a lecture about his personal interests.
Please also remember that in a lot of cases a reply is not just aimed
at you, but to the "silent" masses who are reading the mailing list
but not actively participating.
In shorter form, what I understood was:
a) given the lack of followed standards, and the attitudes of the SOC
vendors, these small ARM boards are a mess - not news to most people
who have been following the situation, but likely new information for
b) pointing out that there is no paid person working for Fedora with a
lab full of all of these different boards - again, likely new
information to some.
c) that the Fedora ARM experience is directly connected with how much
effort the Fedora ARM community puts into it. In this case, yes that
cpuidle requirement likely should be documented, but ideally by
someone who actually has that SOC and thus can be sure that it is
actually required and (in an ideal world) periodically test any future
updates to see if it is still required and update the wiki if
necessary. As Peter does not have an Odroid, he is not the best
person to be doing that even if he did have the available time.
Thus, in general, and again not necessarily aimed at you:
I am sure that Peter would like the Fedora ARM experience to be
better, but if the community wants things to improve then it will be
necessary for the community to put in the effort in testing,
debugging, and documenting.
