I suspect Mattew discussed this around him before, as anything anyone would
propose. Would chatting with Spot on IRC count as going with Red Hat management,
or just 2 community member talking together ? Because the outcome would be the
same. But the 
The proposal was discussed IRL during Flock, the proposal was discussed here before[1]
 and got lot of feedback, the proposal was checked by Board[3] , by FESCO[2].

And I think this was in line with the discussion on the whole "product or platform"
on the Board mailling list, who was started by the user base discussion initiated 
by Robyn [4].

So it all boil down to "thing have changed, and so we think we should also do some changes, for
all those reasons".
