The infrastructure resource point was explicitly handled in the 
proposal. How can there be a proven set of producers and consumers if 
it doesn't exists yet? Proving that something is succesful before it 
is started This is a task that is impossible to achieve.

Besides the reason was not that reason, the final decision was left 
to the board. Many people on FESCo didn't like the proposal for 
various reasons, including the Infrastructure resources, but it 
wasn't the official reason. In fact I have never heard back the 
board answer, but I prefer not knowing how the board refused it.

There was also  the joke about 'metrics', that are very difficult
or impossible to set up in free software projects, and are especially 
not something in fedora -- nor EPEL. And that was a task to perform 
before another proposal in the past (UAEL) could be accepted. A way 
to say no in a authoritative way without saying it frankly.

Honestly, I would have preferred an authoritative answer like 'we 
don't want because we don't want to devote a single resource to
that', rather than lame excuses and unfair impossible prerequisite 
tasks.
