The only thing I really care about is that I not be prevented from or
overly encumbered in updating the packages I maintain for older Fedora

So if I just have to introduce myself to the extras-legacy team and
say "I'll be maintaining denyhosts for FC-3" and don't have to go
through additional process then I'm perfectly happy.  But if I have to
go through additional review or learn a different build system then
I'm not sure it would be worth the trouble.
