You will have to call it something else otherwise it would be a

Fedora Board does not have the ability to command volunteers. People do
the work involved and then ask Fedora Board to endorse an existing
effort. That's how existing sub projects has done. That's how Fedora
Legacy did it as well. The point is that you have to demonstrate that
there are people involved who are willing to put in the effort required
to maintain a release for a longer period of time.
