What I think some people don't like is any change to the desktop or new
bugs getting introduced with major new features. However Fedora is known
and has as one of its underpinning principles to 'lead' rather than
'follow', so I'd hope that just being rather more explicit in the
documentation (somewhere) about what the updates system for KDE is would
go a very long way to resolve this issue. After all the KDE team are
fantastically responsive to issues.
I don't necessarily disagree with this, or the other reservations about
the new proposal. But I would add that it would be helpful if people had
a better idea how they could "lock down" certain apps, or even if that
were possible. I.e., prevent certain things from upgrading. Allowing a
user to say, well, I'm just not going to upgrade KDE has to be a good
thing. Of course, you can do that now, but it is too complicated, and it
is too easy to mess up, get the upgrade, and then have to go through
some nightmarish process to roll it back.
