This seems like the best to me.  As you say there is lots of
infrastructure, and past has proved that RH can allow non redhat people
administrate the lists.  It also ensures the same sort of look/feel of
all the lists involved.

Seems this would just be a perception thing.  There may be cases where
software upgrades might happen quicker, but I don't really know if that
is a real issue or not.  Also it puts a lot of expectation on Seth.  I'd
want to wait until there is more resources surrounding fedoraproject.org
before wholesale cutover.  But thats just my opinion.

I don't like this idea at all.  Decentralized, difficult to aggregate,
user non-intuitive, etc...
