Comment Misleading description of CDE (Score 1) 385

ihaque's description of CDE is a bit misleading. The point of this tool isn't so that you can install applications easily. The point of this tool is reproducibility. You should only use CDE when you need to exactly reproduce your environment on a different machine.

The target audience of this tool is testing and research, not the general population.

CDE isn't meant to be a general install mechanism. You should only use CDE when you need to exactly reproduce your environment on someone else's machine for *testing* purposes.

The example use case of an executable bug report opens up enormous possibilities. You would no longer need to ask the user for information, you can just run the user's setup yourself to gather bug information.
