I'm in FESCo.  I read the Feature page.  It was/is quite detailed.  It
still, unfortunately, doesn't meet the criteria of being a Feature.

Now, that doesn't mean your work is wasted.  It doesn't mean that,
assuming you get the missing packages into Fedora in time, LXDE won't
be installable.  It _will_ be.  All you are missing is the publicity
aspect of a Feature at that point.

Is that disappointing?  Yeah, perhaps.  But if you care enough (and
you seem to), then self-promoting LXDE is always a valid option.
