Of course that can be done like that. But what was appealing in 
the use of fedora infrastructure after end of life was that it could 
be possible to avoid most costs associated with setting up an 
infrastructure of any size. The setup could have been done 
using already accumulated work (including community building) at 
litte additional cost.

It may be done otherwise, sure, it is free software, but I still
think that it would be much less cost-effective.

Now FESCo/board can still veto that, the fact that it is cost-effective
doesn't make it free. But saying that FESCo has no responsibility in
this is wrong.
