Greg DeKoenigsberg suggested[8] that "creating a strong 'patch culture'" for Spacewalk (and by extension, open source projects in general) can be accomplished by setting a strong example. "People behave as they see others behave."

Seth Vidal came up with[10] a list of "critical path" packages "that require special care when updating in rawhide and releases". For more information, see the Critical Path Packages Proposal.

Andrew Vermilya Jamison reviewed[17] KDE4 on Fedora, from the perspective of a Gnome user.

Julian Aloofi reviewed[18] Hannah Montana Linux. Scary.
