Re: [Fedora-ambassadors-list] Press release for new Fedora 5

   This is in reference to the press release that Clair was quoting in her first email of this thread.  While the points followed up with regard to yum are right, the press release as a whole feels a little unprofessional. It should be cleaned up a bit. Also, we shouldn't need to compare ourselves with other alternative operating systems "full of viruses". Just announce what's new, what the release brings to the field and how end users can benefit and enjoy it. The product, I feel, is strong enough to speak for itself, no need to deride alternatives. I think Fedora is above that and doesn't need the senseless hand waving, regardless of what the alternatives themselves may be doing. It appears the site: http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FC5PressRelease is fine , so I'm not sure where the press release Clair was quoting originated from, but I figured I'd respond with my thoughts to avoid situations like that in the future. If I've misinterpreted what was said, just let me know, same thing if you disagree with me.

Anaconda uses yum, which is new for FC5, that is noteworthy.  It is our
first step toward being able to install packages from other repos (like
Extras) while inside anaconda.
