I didn't mean to say that Red Hat should do it. I only said that if some
advice or expertise is needed, I _think_ the folks from Red Hat (JBoss)
can help.

My question is, has anybody from the Fedora project considered this as

but this will need, IMHO, intimate knowledge about the inner workings of
the project).
