While moving it is great, it's not really that important to move it. 

I mean, moving it is useful in the context of stateless systems that
can boot up with empty /etc. However, Fedora is so far away from that,
that we have tons of other things to fix first, before the os-release
move would start to matter.

We haven't posted a feature to make Fedora stateless in this sense,
and hence also didn't ask for /etc/os-release to be moved. There are
some upstream things to work on before we can propose such a Fedora
change.

So, thank you very much for moving it! But this is neither a change
that would really need coordination, nor something we pushed for from
our side.
