    RFC: Undo the merger from hell

    Do I really need to provide reasoning for this one?

    Just read the announcement thread, the opposition is nearly 100%, I think it's time to undo the damage as that is the first natural step in healing the wounds sustained from the merger and fallout. Without this action we will face loosing valued long term members of our family thus risking reduced content creation, less technically skilled personel to help out and a permanent kink in the process of building a OpenFree.org community that has a life of it's own.

    I have noticed in the days since the merger the Fedora section, where I spend most of my time, has been plagued by spam and other guideline violations. If steps are not taken towards undoing this before January 1th 2007 I will cease any effort to maintain that section.

    1st of January 2007 came without Peter even commenting on this proposal, from now on I recommend redirecting all Fedora questions to fedoraforum.org. I will still send out free distros to those who need it but starting today a more effective means could be to mail me the request, please clearly label the subject line "[DISTRO REQUEST]" though to avoid getting trapped in my spam filter (I get +200 spam messages a day so I can't go over every mail to check for false positives, least not every day) and make it easier for me to filter on subject.
