I disagree. You are not being pragmatic. You are looking for
infrastructure support from Fedora without indicating that there is a
benefit to Fedora. Supply without demand is no more useful than demand
without supply. Since Fedora views itself as "the cutting edge distro",
you have an uphill PR fight. Give the Fedora project a reason to spend
some of their limited resources on you. At least let them know your
target audience and why they would be interested.
