I think the short-term risk is worth it, compared to disenfranchising
hundreds.

Highly agree with the security concerns; my proposal[1] is one-time
only, and we need to immediately decide what is the magical meaning of
contributor, how do we measure it, and use that forevermore.

Right now, there are people making a *ton* of contributions on
fedora-list, maybe they have an FAS account for future usage or would be
encouraged to get one because of open elections.  Just because we
haven't found a way to count those folks for grant of a franchise
doesn't mean they should get shorted.

Best to lower the barrier as far as we can, one time, and then raise it
in a proper, clear, documented, well-known way, forevermore.
