This is good to hear. Better than appointing, you're definitely correct.
I think nominations for people worthy of recognition might be useful.
B/c, as you said, you've been busy and might not have noticed people who
have been having an effect. I have a few people in the back of my head
who deserve high praise for putting up with a fair bit of abuse, many of
them at red hat. :)

All of those are pressing points and well understood, my only argument
for delaying a bit is to try and include gnome 2.6. - As Jef Spaleta
mentioned on irc - a cool release name is FC2(.6) ;)

I know a month is a long time in free software but from the avg life
cycle of linux 2.2->2.4->2.6 it won't be a very long in the linux
2.6->2.8 cycle. Getting gnome 2.6 would mean more gnome testing and
that's got to be helpful for RHEL, as well.

my thoughts, worth whatever they're worth.
