You should direct your complaint to the kernel developers.  That's where this

change comes from.


And how about the no automatic editing feature in FC5 (started from the middle
of FC4 onwards)? Where does one direct complaints on this? It is unclear to me
and several others why this feature was removed?

Complain where you wish, so long as you recognize that your complaint might not do any good, given the incorrect venue. My response to Tim was actually intended to help. (Whether or not it did is another matter.) Complaining in this list about something that comes from upstream seems a bit pointless to me, unless you just want your opinion heard, I guess.

FC6 has a nice manpage for gnome-mount now.

and what if users like me decide not to use gnome or KDE? Should
they be expected to give up on Fedora?
