I agree in principle, I think the main issue is finding resources
to essentially make backports and how to deal with people that need
to install the oddball package from one of the other products, will
he install a 3 versions old package ? What if that package has
security bugs but they are not fixed because the other project
moves faster and that version is out of maintenance ? Or how else
do we deal with this ?
One crazy idea would be to make containers support so good that we
could run the recent Fedora Workstation inside the Server but in a
container, though not sure if this would really work or be useful,
I can see various places where it would just create inconsistencies
and not really solve anything.
Container support is one of the topics that the Environments/Stacks
people are being tasked with investigating. The other thing is the
option for *limited* bundling of dependencies with something like
I'd like to get some more information from that group before we go too
far down this road.
Remember, our first task is to set a direction and define the goals
and targets that we want for this project. We do *not* need to define
every detail of how to get there yet.
