Actually, if I were to imagine things ... if FESCo actually said "I want
this to happen" and takes the necessary management roles to get things
started (ie. a wiki discussion page, a mailing list thread, an ad-hoc
committee, etc.), I imagine a lot of people would be happy. But it's
important for FESCo to actually say it because then it becomes an
official Fedora-sanctioned project and people would know they're not
wasting their time. Also, I don't think people expect FESCo to actually
do the work, but at least do the managerial task of organizing people
willing to work.

If volunteers don't turn up, then FESCo's done all they can.

I doubt it's a one-off thing and avoiding situations like it isn't
always desired.
