Sounds like you'd rather FUDCons never happened at all.  It also seems
you've confused "created a proposal" with "made a set in stone final
decision".  These are two different things.  The fact that many key
players in the game happened to be in the same place, at the same time,
and were able to dedicate some high bandwidth discussion to the matter
led to a pretty good proposal.  It's no different than somebody thinking
up a proposal by themselves, or while talking with somebody on the
phone, or IRC, or even email.  It's a proposal.  It can be modified, it
can be adjusted, it can be rejected, etc..  It's a proposal.

I get the fact that you resent being in a timezone and location that
makes it difficult for you to participate in higher bandwidth forms of
communication (irc, phone, face to face).  I can't help that.  However
I'm not about to force the entire Fedora project slow to a crawl just so
that every thought, comment, discussion, fart, whatever happens via a
public email.  That's just ridiculous.  People will continue to talk on
IRC, will continue to chat via IM, will continue to talk on phones, and
will even *shock* talk in person!  Ideas, proposals, and even a decision
or two, depending on the group, will be made in these ways.  Deal with
