Fortunately, the WG can highlight the areas in whatever software they
choose that need to be modified to accomplish the WG's goals.  And due
to the wonderfulness of open source, Fedora can make those changes.
Work with whatever upstream is in question to see if there are changes
that can be done in a manner that benefit both.  Basically,
collaboration and compromise are going to be required.
