This list, firstname.lastname@example.org, is one of the first lists that most

However, it's a high-volume list (and is sometimes perceived to have a
high noise level), so many veterans of the Fedora community aren't
As the result of discussion at the last public (IRC) board meeting, it's
been proposed that narrow the scope of this list a bit. The current
description of this list simply reads:
fedora-users: For users of Fedora
The proposed replacement is:
fedora-users: Help and support for using the Fedora distribution.
Feedback on this proposed change is welcome.
Historically we have avoided using the word "support" because for many
people, it implied commercial support and to differentiate Fedora from
RHEL. Not sure that is a problem anymore. Maybe the following is better:
"Community help and assistance for using the Fedora distribution of Linux"
"Help" and "assistance" are synonyms, so using both would be redundant.
The word "support" would be more in line with "succor" (um, no) or
"encouragement" (hey, that might work!).
Lately I think "sympathy" would be appropriate. :-(
