Think of it this way...
If you want people to actually want to package and maintain server
applications in the distribution and have them work towards making them
"product ready" and be presented and advertised and made available as an
"product" the answer to that question is yes we want to strive to cover
If you dont want people to contribute to Fedora by not giving them that
option or just make products out of what RH maintains or otherwise just
want to put competing products at disadvantage ( think 389ds vs
openldap, xen vs kvm etc ) and put the community in endless dispute
since you effectively decided to favour one application and it's
maintainers over another application then the answer to that question is
no we dont want strive to cover 500+ applications.
+If I as an administrator wanted to deploy Fedora+some server
application in the cloud,container or simply on bare metal it would be
a) something I was familiar with or b) something that got decided on a
general corporate meeting. It would not be an "product" that we ( or
some other entity within our community ) would be deciding what would be
but it would be something that would suit my or my corporate needs and
fit my infrastructure requirements not what they would think would be my
needs or fitted their infrastructure requirements and in that context
having larger product portfolio would be better would it not...
