Then, imho, we've got the same problem in reverse.  Saying that "50% of
the F-star board is guaranteed to be non-RH" is every bit as bad as saying
that "50% of the F-star board is guaranteed to be RH."

The people who do the work of building packages for Fedora decide what the
governance of F-star is.  Full stop.

We shouldn't try to address problems of perception by making arbitrary
decisions in the present.  We should decide what is right, and do it.


If the problems do occur, then a parliamentary system could be the
best 'solution'. The house of Red Hats are those that are appointed by
the 'King' and the house of Blue Hats are those elected by the
commons. The limits on what each house can do is up to the unwritten
constitution :).
