Yeah, I have the feeling that we should give this a good round of
testing for a whole release cycle at least before we PipeWire the
default. Especially if we make it simple to switch between PulseAudio &
PipeWire, we'll give the developers much more usage data than from a few
* propose permanent switch for f35
- it gets at least full cycle of testing (f34 + part of f33)
* re-evaluate situation for f35 beta freeze to make a default switch.
Although a bit slower than expected, I guess more testing is good. It sounds
like an acceptable plan to me.
I'm not sure how it works, if spinoffs can/want to make an earlier
Hm, I don't see a technical reason why a certain edition of Fedora
couldn't ship with PipeWire by default earlier. Albeit I don't think
that jumping ahead of the rest of the distro would reflect very well on
the project, unless you call it "Fedora PipeWire Edition".
