Because all the distro guideline guys want to work inside their own
personal guideline committee instead of meeting each other at the
project level where they have less control. Which can't work as long
as the project is shared.

If you want it to work either have everyone involved CC the messages
to the jpackage-discuss mailing list or delegate someone from FPC to
work there.
