Oh, and I forgot:
* *No* QA of the type the original Fedora Legacy had, where all updates had to 
reviewed before even pushing them to testing and tested before pushing them to 
stable. I believe it was this excessive QA which killed Fedora Legacy. Instead, 
it should be up to whoever submits the updates to decide whether to go through 
testing and when to push to stable, and no QA whatsoever should be required to 
push an update to testing, just as things work in all of Fedora. If the 
security team insists on it, the security team approval system for security 
updates could be applied (though I consider that completely unnecessary 
bureaucracy, but that's a separate rant), if they don't want to be approving 
security updates for EOL releases, then they should just go straight to stable.
