Random thoughts, usually on Fedora

Non communication is vital

Having spend time explaining why the “everything installation doesnt make much sense in hundreds of mails in fedora-test and fedora-list, I have learned one vital lesson for survival that many have taught themselves decades ago – choose your battles wisely.

Communicating or even attempting to do that in some occasions is so much a waste of time and energy that could have saved us all from being called control freaks and what not and everyone would claim that they were being ignored anyway. I thought I would write down a long chain of reasoning but thats just not worth my time which I could spend doing much better productive work on Fedora and other projects that would actually make a difference compared to the utterly worthless discussions on the list.

Feel free to entertain yourself…

  1. Install everything

    The “install everything” debate seems to settle down to the option of “everything” either doing what it says (including all packages), or doing the nearest sensible alternative (including all packages for your language).

    So how about this:
    * Install everything (your language only)
    * Install everything (all languages)

    • Re: Install everything

      It is impossible to install everything since many of the packages are already in Fedora Extras. I dont want to rechurn the entire discussion now. Pretty tired of it.
