This is complete BS.  Maybe one or three messages a month pop up on internal 
lists, and those are immediately redirected to external lists.  The idea that 
we have long and involved threads regarding core on some hidden lists is 
completely false.

Yes, because it is quite difficult to define what is needed for CURRENT 
maintainers.  All our policies are designed around NEW maintainers joining 
the fold.  Many of these RH employees were already in the fold as 
maintainers.

These decisions were made at the Fedora summit, with the Fedora board and 
other community folks, complete with an IRC channel during the live 
discussions.  Further discussion has happened in Fedora board meetings and 
public Fedora lists.

I don't even know what you mean by this.
