Why don't we see how this new system all works out? The original 
approach with fedora-devel-list has been around for awhile, and there 
have been problems with S/N.

So let's give this new system some time and see what the risk/reward is 
to this approach. After all, even though Fedora as an OS might have a 
long lineage, Fedora as a community is still really new. This makes 
everything both easy and hard because there's a lot of users to begin 
with, and everyone wants almost-the-same-thing-but-not-quite. So, 
figuring out how to build a community on the fly that works for everyone 
is a hard problem. Having some data or experience with which to support 
a particular point of view will help.

If there are significant downsides to the new structure, or things 
become unworkable, I'm sure that the Fedora folks will be open to 
revisiting the issue.
