If cleaning false assumptions and admitting that some areas are real 
problems - is improving, that's what I'm doing.

And pulling out the welcomness from this particular identity is 
actually the only thing that can be done - considering the context ;)

What I see is only possible way to do that is some kind of 
sertificate thing that would require global network of trusted
fedora people (like already met in meetings) able to sign those 
fedora contributor certificates after checking the id documents 
first (against ban lists).

There are around 200 countries and some have quite long distances,
requiring to meet people face to face doesn't really sound very 
feasible. Not being feasible doesn't remove the problem however.

Easier would be to write red warning into wiki that "We actually
don't know who took part of building fedora, so consider yourself 

Didn't someone just crack berlios site to inject something into
projects? In fedora you don't even need to crack anything, you get
invited to commit.
