Such decisions shouldn't be taken at FUDCon because it automatically
excludes people who cannot be present at the event. You should use the
events only to discuss the issues and make the decisions over mailing
lists or irc where others can participate as well.
The problem with this whole process is not FESCo didn't want the spins
to be considered features but how it has been not been delegated
properly and who is responsible for the final decisions is still
unclear. Ideally, FESCo would have still considered spins as features so
that spin maintainers have a procedure to follow up until the time,
alternative procedure and a owner/team responsible for the final
decision is outlined somewhere.
I am not sure what to do for the Xfce spin or the local language spins
now. Anyone want to clarify this?
