This makes me wonder.

1. What is the ratio of external(non-redhat) committer/contributors?
Meaning if 90% of the code comes from RH, is this really a problem?  I'm
not saying that RH should flex its muscle and influence the community, but
I am wondering if we're over-thinking it?  Is this a real problem or a
perceived problem.
2. Wouldn't you argue that enforcing style guides is the "right thing to
do" because it improves code and quality in the long run?  And it theory
should also make it easier for new contributors to get involved as there is
consistency of code style due the guidelines?
