Nothing major like this gets changed on whims.  This change was done to
solve real world problems.

The special forum is just linux kernel mailing list and fedora devel
list where this was broadly announced and discussed.  All major features
follow the feature process
( and gets voted upon by
the Fedora Engineering Steering Committee which itself is a body elected
by the Fedora contributors.   If you subscribe and follow fedora devel
list, you can follow all such discussions in the future.
