Another post reninforcing the idea of meritocracy over democracy in Fedora

"Many people mistakenly think that open source projects are emergent,
self-organized and democratic. The truth is just the opposite: most are
run by a benevolent dictator or two. What makes successful open source
projects is leadership, plain and simple. One or two people articulate a
vision, start building towards it and bring others on board with
specific tasks and permissions. The best projects are the ones with the
best leaders."
