I expect Fedora to protect my interests, so I don't have to do code reviews. 
Clearly there are limits to that, but I except some risk in order to save 
time and money.

I made no such claim. What I don't want to have to do is to have to trust 
them to be responsible about data they have no need for in the first place.
