You need to decide, do you make it FPC's call or not? You can't have
it both ways, e.g. put the FPC through making a decision and then
turning it down.

And the FPC is not a political organ, EPEL is (in this context). Don't
pass on the Old Maid to the FPC. The decision on whether or not to
introduce repotags is ours, and that's all what the voting proposal is
about. Consider the EPEL/FPC relation here like management and
engineering. The manager decides, the engineer turns the decision into
bits.

If you like to decide on implementation details within EPEL the FPC
will be grateful to only get a ready EPEL-releated guideline to vote
on. Otherwise you can rightfully pass it on to the FPC and they/we
will form adequate mechanisms like they do for all issues they get
thrown at. Which if the FPC foobars can still be stopped at fesco
level, every EPEL/FPC decision ultimatively goes through fesco, in
this case it will even have to go twice.

So, as you see everything has its proper procedures and
mechanisms. But it is *you* (as a member of EPEL) that will make a
political decision on using repotags or not and what signal of
cooperation this will beam onto other 3rd party repos.
