A while back a kde update caused kmail to stop working on imap accounts
and I dont use the DE in Fedora anymore because I wanted to avoid such
problems with big updates and while I don't have the bz number for that
problem handy it would easy enough to find if you are interested and
every big push has repeatedly brought out similar problems
So you filed a bug. I will search for it. So you stop'd using it, BUT
you faced more problems like that. Now that's interesting. Or is it
that you blow into the same horn as others do? If so, i would have
expected more from you.

This is seriously petty and I would point out that messing around with
the buildroot as part of the big kde update is what caused the problem
in the first place and yes I was told that future announcement would add
more clarity and the sig would avoid buildroot overrides for future updates
Indeed better announcements will save (almost) that problems. And a
better system than buildroot overrides we're asking/asked for will
help there as well. Though there's that link YOU provided and pointed
fingers at US.

You seem to assume that other people dont talk to Fedora users and that
is wrong and I still differ from your position
No, i just tell you (not only you, but all people) that they shouldn't
forget about what Fedora stands for and the things we earn our love
for. So the one who assumes something seems to be you. I don't want to
convert you, so please keep your different position. But stay with
what YOU know from experience and provide BZs for that mass of
regressions/problems you faced. That's something YOU want from users
as well who have a different position than you.
