    It's intentional; we're not going to ship an application that has a
    sole use of creating security holes.

    Maybe the menu entry should be removed to avoid confusion?

    Now I haven't heard form either KDE or the Maintainer of K3b of ANY security issues with K3bsetup.

    Did I miss a bug report here or is this person pulling my leg or has no clue what I submitted ? LOL

    I guess I will respond :P

    I must say that the Fedora Team is the only distro I've seen make this kind of change. Sounds to me like they are getting a little anal...

    The menu entry is removed.

    k3bsetup changes the owner and group of the CD devices, and the
    permissions on various binary apps. All of this is unnecessary; ergo,
    it's not going to be shipped. (And making things like cdrecord, etc.
    setuid *will* open up security holes in the future.)

    Well, I guess the Fedora Team isn't all that different from the original Redhat Team.

    Yes, in certain aspects they are right, but I was under the impression Fedora was
    more for the "EndUser" than it's big brother RHEL.

    I guess Fedora was more of a corporate move for sme reason and not for the
    Open Source world
