Is there any previous archived discussion anywhere....that talks about
their plans with regard to actually interacting with Fedora in a
"project" sense.  If there goal really is to attract developers, they
need to talk to us about aligning the development process of moblin
with Fedora policies...or else the switch they are doing might not not
give them a contributor boost.  Isn't that one of the lesson learned
from OLPC?  Just forking the Fedora 'bits' isn't going to necessarily
be the win in terms of contributor involvement.  I think they need to
seriously be looking at how to pull moblin development into the Fedora

Who's at OSCON right now, who can talk to Dirk about this?    Greg?
