I was reading the announcement in your website [1] about the new Fedora 
Core 4 release and I noticed a misconception that I would like to 
clarify. While talking about the Fedora steering committees you have 
mention that "In practice, it was controlled by Red Hat staffers, who 
held all the steering committee positions." which is not true for 
several projects including  Fedora Extras [2] and Fedora docs [3] and 
Fedora Marketing [4] itself

The leadership structure follows the guidelines defined in 
http://fedora.redhat.com/about/leadership.html where steering committee 
members include Fedora community people who are *not*  in the Red Hat 
Staff list.

I would also like to add that it would also be a good idea to include in 
future Fedora release announcements our  newly revised Fedora release 
notes created  by Karsten Wade & co - 
http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/release-notes/fc4/ and our installation 
guide for Fedora written from scratch by community members and Fedora 
docs steering committee people,  Stuart Ellis (not Stuart Little!)  and 
Paul.W.Frieds - http://fedora.redhat.com/docs/fedora-install-guide-en/fc4/

There has been a announcement about the intention to create a Fedora 
Foundation [5] for encourage more community participation  which I am 
sure you are already aware of [6]

Thank you for spreading our the information on the new release of Fedora 
Core 4
