That's a wrong conclusion, people just get burned out and "don't want
to be that guy" (grep the archives to understand the latter
quote). Especially in a topic like fedora-usermgmt that spanned into
three different lists by now.

Anyway the need to vote on that is undisputed, alone the magnitude of
list space these topics consume require an official EPEL stand-up. And
if you feel like there should be more information in the wiki or
elsewhere, since you read all mails, maybe you could volunteer to do
"that small task" and make Thorsten happy.

FWIW "I don't want to be that guy".
