Long and contentious discussion about concerns with the VolumeControl
feature. FESCo decided to get gnome-alsamixer packaged and added to the
default desktop live/install spins to allow users whos use cases are
not covered currently by VolumeControl to have a GUI way to adjust
mixer settings. Hopefully this will be dropped/revisited in F12.

Wearing my Board hat, I'll give a quick history lesson: changes were mandated to codeina a few releases ago post feature freeze. The changes would have made codeina more acceptable for Fedora's stance on freedom, however that change was reversed by the board because it was mandated post feature freeze, and it was agreed future mandates, if any, would come down pre-feature freeze, but we should not be in the business of giving mandates.

So, can someone tell me how mandating this is more important than mandating Fedora be free, and why this decree should not be reversed? Do I really need to bring this up at the next board meeting?
