So the two main areas for sysadmins you highlighted were multiple

Those are already addressed as things Workstation is looking at in the
Other users section, but it seems they actually fit into at least the
'corporate developer' user case as well. I'd suggest moving those two
specific items into one of those other user cases as a starting point
and move on from there.
I'm not sure targeting sysadmins specifically is something
can focus on, because their needs often get into specific areas that
aren't really what Workstation is for. Things like admin tools, etc.
However, we can certainly try and address the more general needs from
a sysadmin group, and of course we can (and should) solicit feedback
from them as we go.
Yeah, I hear the point about not developing or focusing on admin tools.
I just don't want to send the message that the new main Fedora desktop
offering is intended to be exclusionary of feedback from our technical
users, and sysadmins in particular (because that group is important to the
whole Fedora ecosystem!). That would be the opposite of what we were talking
about at Flock when Stephen brought the idea. The developer targets
certainly have some overlap, and as I understand the PRD they're not meant
to be exclusionary, so I think it's overall good even if it's not exactly
what I personally would want.
