I'm not sure that's strong enough. It should clearly state

managerial röle; working with upstream or with code-monkeys within
Fedora to get things fixed. How about this:
Do we need to make an effort to catalog skillsets in the contributor
base? to make it easier to help maintainers find a particular sort of
code-monkey? For example I know you are one of the people I can come
to with ppc oddness that I can't fix myself, but I'd have no idea how
to turn to for say ruby-ness.
But generally speaking would it be worthwhile if 'we' made it easier
for maintainers to find other contributors who could help with
specific bugs based on skillset needed?
