So, your response to Christoph when you appropriated his hard work, reducing him to a byline, was just something made up to extricate yourself from an indefensible situation?

Your response on 32-bit systems is puerile: there has been no claim made that a "large majority" of users use 32-bit systems. Besides, how do you know anything about 64-bit or other systems in this case, since there is no way you can find out anything about these other systems, once again in this case?

I am pretty certain that all new chips are 64-bit: of course, users should continue to use older 32-bit systems if they have any, but you are shutting off development of the LXDE spin to the newer chips.

I fail to see how everyone with his/her own private remixes/spins can contribute to the building of an official Fedora remix/spin.

Arrogance and whim are not good open-source values: they are best left behind for the closed-source world....as is appropriation which is sort of how windoze started....
