That was not the case and I have explained this several times. There was an
open discussion on the Fedora requirements before they were finalized.
But there wasn't an open discussion on the finalized list, or on the
summarized list. That would have been the point at which this gap could
have been spotted.
Still, if the F/OSS requirement was communicated in some other way and
was not *entirely* lost in the process of user story evaluation (as, to
be fair, the rejection of Github implies), the situation is certainly
not as bad as it first seemed.
There was not an open discussion on the entire list end to end for
I have already stated as cross stakeholder analysis with no recourse for
all stakeholders involved was not something that would have added value. I
stand over that and again I apologise for not looping the entire
stakeholder group in.
I'm referring to this specific promise which was made in the initial
description of the process:
"Additionally, a live video call and associated IRC meetings will be
held and advertised in advance to discuss the requirements, talk about
concerns and address any questions."
That, AFAIK, did not happen. If it *had* happened, that would have been
precisely the point at which someone would have looked at the list and
said "hey, wait, why does it not say anything at all about F/OSS?", and
the discussion we've had here over the last two days could have
happened there instead. Which, I'm pretty sure, would have added quite
a lot of value.
