Re: Developers vs Grandmas



Sure! But the idea behind it is what is valuable, I think! It shows a simple local file could improve the user experience without having to alter upstream hard-code, and in an easy to maintain manner. Why not do it in a persistent way locally, by Fedora Project, the same way logos, for example, are maintained? Well, if the name of this list is "expanding the Fedora user base", I think this is a tiny thing that would do it. But, anyway, this is just my humble opinion (based on what I hear from users near me). I certainly do not want to populate the wrong list if this is considered to be the case. Thanks for your comments.

I beg to differ regarding this comment:

"For example, changing gconf default behavior is in fact changing the
upstream software. Now Nautilus on Fedora would behave differently."

The Fedora LiveCD, for example, changes default gconf behaviour of turning screen saver lock off, autologin, logos etc.

These changes are made only for the live cd environment to make Fedora more suitable as a live CD. You would lose them all once you install it however. It appears that a nautilus change only for the live cd environment doesn't add any real value and hence changing the default file manager behavior is different from the other non-persistent changes you have pointed out.
