FYI: FESCo in its meeting today agreed that this is the route it wants
to take (notting and jesse were around, too, and did not yell). Could
the board please look at the proposal, discuss it in its tomorrows
meeting and ACK it or if it dislikes parts give feedback if it wants to
see something changed?

BTW, we did not agree on a final name yet. I'll ask fedora-devel-list
and fedora-extras-list for name suggestions. FESCo will discuss the name
issue in this weeks meeting and push hard to find the final name in next
weeks meeting.
