Generally speaking, I'm a big supporter of "if it didn't happen on the
mailing list, it didn't happen." Votes during real-time meetings usually
mean someone is being excluded by default because of time zones,
overlapping commitments, etc. And yes, anything Fedora should happen
through regular Fedora processes.

I don't think we were chartered to *not to distribute* an OS, but the idea
was explicitly to avoid creating a 4th OS that would be independent of
RHEL, Fedora, and CentOS.

That said, despite the growing pains, I think it made more sense to have a
Fedora-based AH distributed by Fedora, and a CentOS-based one distributed
by CentOS - though there were certainly times when I would have liked to
have just set up a build host + downloads independently rather than the
work that was required to do so through the other projects...
