Wow, I love rap.
I do believe Mono opposers sometimes get utterly annoying.
I believe also moderators are not careful enough and sometime just close discussions or mark-duplicate the hell-out-of-brainstorm just for the sake of (and because being bored, not having time, and so on). Or just because they can.
One thing I strongly believe is that the head of the Ubuntu Community have no interest at all in discussing the issue anymore. Nor letting people discuss that in any of the parts of the community, be it bugs, brainstorm, forums, mailing lists and so on.
In fact they even not care of providing a place for discussion to happen. Ubuntu does not care about Mono issues. It’s not that people are not allowed to talk. It’s that every place they find is the wrong place. There’s no such place inside the Ubuntu community facilities.
Not that I don’t find some bits of the Gnote thread regrettable.
Still one wonders how and where should those things be discussed.
As a side note tomorrow Fedora 11 will ship without Mono, because of space constraints. But they would include it if they could. Really !
