I didn't mean "message" in a marketing sense. I meant internally, in
user-developer interactions within Fedora; I don't want a Fedora
contributor's report of "change X makes it harder for me to use Fedora" or
"this is great! more of this please" to be met with "you're not a
so Fedora isn't interested in you."
Fair. There needs to be a feedback loop.
Though I don't think it's unreasonable to politely say Feature
requests are out of scope for particular products. Or that particular
features (small f) would be nice, but aren't prioritized. That won't
be driven by "you aren't a developer" or "you aren't using the
product the way we intended" answers, but by the reality of limited
resources and prioritization.
