Hi Luiz. I'm not sure arguing on no-technical details here will help.
Still I feel it is important to say that I don't find it justified to
call it *complaining* when somebody is proposing patches which
apparently enable missing functionality and avoid necessity for running
with root privileges.

Now if patch is bad on the technical level, that would be valid point to
reject it. I see Pali trying to address any raised concerns though so I
hope it is alright.

But rejecting the patches on premises that it is not necessary for
solution X and blocking any alternative solutions is IMO unfair.

The needs of car industry are very different from the needs of desktop
users. I'm not a kernel or bluetooth developer but as a user of Network
Manager (that you gave as an example) I can say that it changed a lot
making network management at single point and changing networks easily
while moving around. I've been a network admin in the past and it has
not been a problem to only use static network setup. As a laptop user
though things dramatically changed.

Same goes with Pulse audio/ALSA. While everything could be done with
ALSA it has been much harder and up to the skills of a very few people
to manage audio inputs/outputs/redirection properly. Certainly since
Pulse became stable I never missed asoundrc.

Thus for users it is important what desktop developers are providing.
While we can assume they are all idiots doing things in all the wrong
ways, I'd rather prefer to think they may have a point when choosing
certain technology over another.

So I'm asking anybody that it depends on, to look from the desktop user
perspective and help move this forward.

Thank you.
