Maybe on the packaging side, that is more packages to maintain (the
minimal target being @code + @base in my opinion, but this can be
discussed), but less on the QA and process side. Moreover now that core
is opened it means that contributors may be more involved in core
packages and may have done merge reviews (at least it is my case)
while for legacy people started with packages they had no
reason to know.

We'll follow. But I don't think that fedora will ever get near what had
to be done in legacy.
