Craig, would you mind quoting the exact moment I used the terms  'it
was decided' and 'reached good solutions' ? I don't reacall using them
in this way, and i just couldn't find it in this thread. however, I do
remember using 'it was suggested' or 'suggested good solutions'. The
difference is subtle but important: noone 'decided' anything. But
there were 'suggestions' that seemed to be more widely accepted, so I
may have writte 'better slutions' when referring to those.

In that you are right. Again, we have the vice of confusing
"community" with "democracy" (as was clearly cited before), and then
trying to stick our noses where they don't belong.

There has never been an objection to that. But notice the
"overlapping" term you used yourself. This is the important detail
that can't be overstressed: give people the option to access the
information in any way they want, but keep all the information in the
same place.
The only question I would put is: is *any* post to fedoraforum appear
automatically in the list, and vice versa? (In other words, are they
just two different means to access the same information?)
