Just very minor contribution to alrready very complex trhead.
- to remove packager status if they are not using it, is just wrong. OpenJDK was using it
far years and it really did not proved itself. Now OpenJDK have policy, that once you
earn any status, you remain with it. The downgrade or no longer
propagated status (eg form project to project) was super confussing and made more issues
then it solved. Now it is much better.
- to remove proven packager status, if they are nto using proven packagers powers, is
similarly wrong. Well, if there is email with deadlnie.. then maybe... As for my case -
I'm not using my proven packager powers, but once per two years,
I'm bumping system JDK. And n that moment I'm using my proven packager skill
heavily. So hard timeout, would again do just confussion (like negotiating proven
packager status again 5 minutes before dealines)
I belive all liek thsi was already said....
Thanx all for making fedora just better and better!

That policy was setup before this one for packagers. ;)
