Nope.  Not at all.  I won't speak for the whole Board, but I personally
think the Spins SIG is a great enabler for people that care enough to
pitch in and create a different flavor of Fedora.  I'll also note that
the Board has also done nothing to disallow, prevent, encumber, or
otherwise block any sort of package or spin that fits within our
various guidelines.

Really, this is not about Gnome vs. KDE vs. XFCE vs. LXDE vs. EL
vs. fvmw2 vs. <random other DE>.  Not all all.
