Codeina and how to proceed

Some people clearly feel like codeina is doing the Fedora world a
much-needed service, and others clearly feel that it isn't.  The Board
decided last week that it's in the latter camp[1], but the decision to
keep the open-source MP3 codec offering and strip out the other
closed-source codec offerings rankled several people[2,3,4].


Other Board members and I responded[5,6,7] to invite people to discuss
the matter here.


Is someone willing to take up maintainership of Codeina for F9 at this
point?  Would it be (A) fitting, or (B) autocratic, for someone on the
Board to take up that responsibility?

Bill Nottingham indicated previously on this list that there were ways
to change Codeina to allow drop-in data.[8]  Is someone interested in
pursuing that?
