Fedora and MeeGo

Rahul bought up on the marketing list [1] a question as to why Fedora
wasn't listed in the MeeGo release announcement as part of the MeeGo
community announcement [2].

Being the maintainer of Moblin (hopefully soon to be MeeGo as soon as
the code is released) I had two reasons why it wasn't. Firstly I
didn't know and the MeeGo community from the corporate side of things
seems like a Private Gentleman's Club that you need to know the secret
handshake to become a member of (basically I'm naive when it comes to
vendor inter realationships). Secondly I feel that it needs some form
of board and legal agreement that its something Fedora wishes to
pursue and that I don't have the authority to commit to that sort of

So I ask the question is this something Fedora is interested in and
who needs to do it. I can assist from the tech side of things but I
feel the rest is probably best coming from someone else.
