How do you differentiate a Fedora developer and an upstream developer?
I'm not sure being a Fedora developer is particularly interesting.
I guess I don't think most people are interested in writing an OS.
But seems lots of people are interested in writing apps and dellvering
them to users. So I was referring to that: app development. And here
I'm not excluding web apps either. There is a strong case being made
for html5 as a development platform.
Fair enough. Being a Fedora developer involves pre-loading tools
necessary to interact with the Fedora Infrastructure, and maybe even
having a guided "get setup for Fedora development" document or wizard.
Totally inappropriate for somebody who isn't going to be a Fedora
