of course you realize that if you don't read through the developers list
(there is a public archive) and see for yourself what the criteria was
for the changes, then you accept someone's characterization as factual
and thus, changes often appear to be arbitrary and insensitive when in
all likelihood, they were made for good reasons.

If you except the notion that Fedora is 'cutting edge' technology, then
you would understand the notion that the developers are going to change
things for the betterment of the overall product as opposed to not
keeping things the same merely to meet people's expectations. The
packaging that favors not changing things is the 'stable' or
'enterprise' releases of which Fedora is clearly not.
