I usually try to stay away from threads like this. With that excuse: I
really hope this does not increase bureaucracy. There are hardly any
examples where a bureaucratic/democractic governance model would have had
any real positive impact on open source projects, quite the contrary. When
policies start to matter more than technical questions, you are already
lost.

Personally, I would rather give FESCo more power. Perhaps this could at
least end the shouting contest that Fedora developer mailing list has
become.


Two cents from a Fedora user,

Jukka.
