JPackage is a cross-distribution neutral ground. So its guidelines can
not be approved only at the Fedora level without alienating non-Fedora
JPP contributors. JPackage Fedora members can propose Fedora-oriented
changes, and those changes can be then adopted as-is by the project
(if other JPP players have no objection), but I don't think something
Fedora-branded, Fedora-hosted, and with only FPC or FESCO control is
going to fly.
