Mostly I agree, but one note here: if there is one group to whom we should be more aggressively "marketing", it is to potential contributors. Fedora needs to be more about contributors, and therefore making the lives of contributors easier.

Couldn't agree more... Fedora seems to have too much "bureaucracy" for contributors to, well, contribute. Some might say that it is standard bureaucracy, but still quite cumbersome at times. Not that it is difficult, just messy and cumbersome at times. I know that the "others are not so bureaucratic" argument means nothing, at least to the many Fedora contributors and community members, but I've seen my share of complaints from "would be" contributors about just that.

Anyone want to gather the specific complaints in that regard?

I know we're working on some issues -- improving the CLA, working on a new account management system, other small things -- but knowing the pain points of new contributors is always important.
