But why are you making this decision in the first place?

This:
1. is a technical decision which affects the entirety of Fedora, and thus 
MUST go through a FESCo vote to be implemented, AND
2. affects the core values of Fedora, and thus MUST go through a Board vote 
to be implemented.

It is not acceptable that the kernel and GRUB maintainers are trying to 
sneak this in through the backdoor with no mandate whatsoever from our 
governance structure.
