Agreed, but now and then they (or something like a Steering Committee)
are still needed afaics. Especially in EPEL we need some group to send a
"This is the direction" signal, as some people want a "Stable EPEL, with
a update style similar t othe one from RHEL" while others want a "Extras
like, always rolling, always new and shiny" style. Mixing the two models
would afaics the worst, so someone needs to pick the site, even if some
people feel pissed of.
