Taking issue with an organization that is *two* jumps away from Fedora
(Fedora => Red Hat => FSFE) is *not* the same as taking issue with an
organization that is *one* jump away and directly related (Fedora => Red
Hat.) If you have concerns about Red Hat's involvement with FSFE, then
Red Hat is the appropriate organization to address.
Your rationale would apply if FSFE was not two hops away. In the same
way, to continue your analogy - under pandemic guidance in a number of
regions and countries, if you were in *direct* contact with an infected
individual (*one* hop away), you must quarantine, but you do not have to
quarantine if you were in contact with an individual who was in direct
contact with an infected individual (*two* hops away.) That is how
contact tracing works.
My metaphor was valid but a technical analysis doesn't feel helpful.
When it comes to leadership, people look at the big picture.
For example, if your doctor tells you to stop smoking and then you see
him smoking outside the pub, it undermines what he told you. He can't
just say "I'm at the pub so its off topic now"
