Step right back how the community is working and reread the statement
you just made...
Gnome developers within the project as well as many other upstream
maintainers we have handle their development upstream and Gnome
developers within our project as well as many other upstream developers
we have prefer getting their reports filed upstream so what kind of
downstream development are you seeing here that would be specific for
Fedora only and to the workstation product that specifically requires
their full time present here within the project and which application
developers have agreed to devote their free time developing those that
When you make this statement "last but not least we need manpower for
it's development and maintenance." with the exception of the kernel as
far as I know the general rule of thumb for developers within the
project is to fix in upstream first then backport fix downstream so what
exactly is the benefit of your statement?
Would it not be better use of developers time to have packagers handle
the primary downstream packaging ( with developers themselves only
acting as co-maintainers and overseeing the distribution implementation
) so they have more time dealing with bugfixes and implementing features
Now with my QA hat on I must say that I prefer that we as well start
looking into reporting where the developers are actually listening since
that will in turn increase the likely hood that bug will be seen as well
as being fixed which benefits everybody not only us here within Fedora
and *improve* overall end user experience with Fedora.
Now if that happens to be in bugzilla.redhat we use bugzilla.redhat if
that happens to be in bugzilla.gnome we use bugzilla.gnome...
