I agree to an extent.  My major concern is that we have... uncontrolled
innovation happening (which is great!) but the Fedora name and brand is
being attached to it, and we have no differentiation between something
the Fedora team has put out as a release through QA/Releng/Fedora
community testing/etc... and something somebody cooked up in the
backroom and threw over the wall.  I would want it to be clear that
somebody is consuming a "contrib" creation rather than a blessed spin.
And no, I don't really have any good ideas on how to make that
distinction outside of a second mark.
