This gets a big +1 from me. Even before the unfortunate events of the last few 
weeks the infrastructure team has been doing an amzing job. A big thanks to you 

I've especially grown to appreciate all the infra work after being involved in 
trying to duplicate the infra for a 3th pary repository. After this humbling 
experience I cannot express how happy I'm with the Fedora infrastructure!!
