I'm proposing a complete reorganization of The Fedora Project. Leave
FESCo and their current role as it is. Figure out how to create a new
FESCo type org for this new goal. I'm proposing the board find/request
the resources to make this happen. Contact the likes of mozilla perhaps
even google. Look around and see who else is interested in contributing
resources and see if this is feasible. If the board's job isn't to set
vision, policy and find resources, what is it?
