I think this is a brilliant and not surprising move.  

Maybe it is time to resurrect the redhat contrib net membership list and
reinvite (them/us) back into the fold?  My memory of RCN was that as
time went on the incoming directory was processed less and less
frequently and eventually people just gave up.  However, these packagers
all have a long term aquaintance with the .spec format and would make a 
great boost to fedora if they could be brought back.
