The Fedora Core Technical Committee made the decisions.  That's Cristian
Gafton, Jeremy Katz, Elliot Lee and Bill Nottingham.

I know you're unlikely to accept this but could we go with 'b/c these
guys have been doing this for a long time so trust them'.

Hell, I'm unlikely to accept this but despite what most people think -
fedora is not a place where everyone's opinion is equal. The opinions of
specific people at red hat count for a lot more.

Right now the process is such that getting more say in fedora means
doing more work.

How do you go about doing more work you ask? Step up, and genuinely
offer, you'll find plenty to do.
