What would be the proper RFC process to go over such a change? As in
say creating a /srv/fedora/ and start populating it with data or some
such? Or say putting in a notice that we would like to move /tftpboot
to something else and please give us feedback on how we can accomplish
this with the least amount of pain, and then putting it to a proper
engineering group to vote on it?
