Sorry, I'm a little busy to redact this in a better way, but my
ideas/questions about it:
1. Are we recommending people to add 3rd party repos with non-free
software? e.g.: RPMFussion non-free
My position: It's OK for us to talk about software we know people use
that is not free. For instance, we reference Google Chrome because we
know well over half our users download and use it. However,
*recommending* it is another step and one I don't think we want to
take, because that specifically disadvantages free software.
2. Are we overrulling default apps pre-installed? e.g.: Rhythmbox as
See above, I don't think overruling is appropriate. But we also won't
ignore the fact that people do use other things. Our purpose isn't to
judge user choices. At the same time we can and should publish
stories about the free software offered in Fedora.
From my perspective, the answers in #1 and #2 have governed the way
the editorial board has approached pitches for articles, and will
continue to do so.
3. Will we stick to su -c or to sudo?
We use sudo, with an article pointer on the magazine that tells people
how to use it.
