Description Jef Spaleta 2006-04-14 19:45:04 UTC
Description of problem:
I think the #fedora irc conversation sums the issue nicely.

<beetlepun_> Magic8Ball, fedora-extras-devel relates to unstable branches? I
thought they represented stable development libraries -- you see I don't just
work with fedora..
<Magic8Ball> beetlepun_: stable development    where did you get that idea?
<beetlepun_> Magic8Ball, as I said, I don't just work on Fedora
<Magic8Ball> beetlepun_:  that didnt answer my question
<Magic8Ball> beetlepun_: i am asking specifically why you thought  fedora had a
concept of "stable development"
<beetlepun_> Magic8Ball, where'd I get that idea? Well I know what the
difference is between a mutex and a semaphore
<Magic8Ball> beetlepun_: okay this isnt going anywhere

Can you just drop in the boiler plate from fedora-development.repo into
fedora-extras-development.repo as well so "developers" who know the difference
between a mutex and a semaphore are aren't confused into thinking
fedora-extra-development is stable.

Actual results:
People are idiots.

Expected results:
People are idiots

Additional info:
People are idiots.

Not that these types of users would read it, I've updated it anyway in CVS. 
Will be picked up by next release.
