RFEs like this are in need of _somebody_ to make decisions.
I would agree for most RFE's.
But not for this specific RFE: There is (afaics) no real downside for
users. So there is not much to discuss IMHO, it just needs somebody to
do it and work out the details -- and start a privte or public
discussion in case problems emerge where a discussion and a decision is
But discussing that without knowing that anybody will work further on it

is no work-horse to "just do it", i.e. to decide on something and work
with contributors on feasible solutions.
I partly did that in the past, but as I said multiple times: I don't
want to anymore for now and I'm willing to support individuals or
(preferred better) a group of people that want to take of steering and
"governing" RPM Fusion.
Where something sucks, it needs
somebody to say "we want to improve in that area" and to put something

servers (and there were many situations where the lack of automated
repoclosure scripts was discussed on this list, so it was never really
