Because the requirements are different between serverWG and
workstationWG so divergance is unavoidable.
And what is the purpose of this effort if these things do not diverge?
Configuration and management tools mostly.
What would be the difference of what we have now compared to fedora
That you have a coherent set of configuration and management tools that
are server oriented. It's not like we need to diverge on the packages,
but it would be a side effect of every one going their road.
All Linux distribution ship the same packages, but most
incompatibilities come from naming and versions, I do not see as a good
thing to have internal divergence in Fedora.
It would be especially taxing for those packages that need to go in
multiple products if they had to be rebuilt in all of them because
underlying packages slightly differ.
