Well, protesting here would be meaningless .. as is protesting systemd
here.  CentOS-8 will have whatever is in the RHEL-8 source code, exactly
as it is in that source code minus branding.  Just like CentOS-2.1, 3,
4, 5, and 6.  Our goal is to rebuild the source code exactly, bugs and
all.  We want all the behaviors and the experience to be identical in
every way.

If you want to effect change before it gets in RHEL, then Fedora is the
place.  If you want to get it changed in CentOS, then buy RHEL and
providing feedback there is the way.  We are, by design, exactly as Red
Hat pushes the RHEL source code.
