Well, the involvement from non-FESCo members in meetings was a lot
better (but still far from perfect) a year ago afaics.

I actually hit the point many months ago where said "okay, I tried to do
lots of stuff without being in FESCo or the Board; but it is way to hard
and I'm wasting my time here". Main reason for that: I posted proposals
to the list, got comments and integrated them into my proposal; some
FESCo members didn't participate in the list discussions but in the
meeting to vote on the porposal those suddenly said "I don't like part
X". So I went back to the drawing board, list discsusion to hear in the
next FESCo meeting just another FESCo member say "I don't like part Y".
I went thought that loop multiple times and that was just frustrating,
so I'm ATM a bit unwilling to do more stuff in Fedora-government land
again before this isn't getting fixed.

With getting fixed I'm not sure how to get that fixed exactly; maybe
work work more towards a Meritocracy-like way and lessen the influence
of the committees we have?
