OK, looks like the list is quiet-ish, so let me say what I think.  :)

Issue #1, and what I think is most important for Fedora users: the number
of torrent seeds available for Ogg users is quite low.  I'd like to 
propose two mechanisms for dealing with this, in the fairly near future:

a. Offer some Fedora infrastucture to help seed Ogg files.  I can put this 
question in front of the board.  Strategic investment in a couple of 
servers could boost the availability of Ogg files significantly.

b. Getting bittorrent into Fedora default installations.  I'm already 
having discussions with the board on this topic.

So, Laurent, interested to hear what you think of this idea.  And what 
anyone else thinks, for that matter.  :)
