I think you're misinterpreting the words of Christian. Red Hat (also
my employer, but speaking for myself here) can't and shouldn't be pay
to fix and QA spins like LXDE or MATE. If keeping a MATE spin makes it
harder or slower for the people developing GNOME (which Red Hat should
sponsor) then I don't see the problem in his statement. Red Hat spends
a ton of money on Fedora, and I think a lot of the community seem to
forget that.

The QA already doesn't have blockers for spins. As adam has mentioned spins don't affect QA's work or progress at all.

I understand red hat spends a lot of money on fedora, but wielding the spins away is definitely a bad rapport for the community and it in turn a negative thing to participate for the project too.
