I didn't say it was beholden to any the fedora packaging committee. I
said the packaging committee will want a drive-by on when it plans on
going into upstream rpm so they can plan for it in the distro and in the
packaging rules for fedora. 

So, it's actually the other direction: The packaging committee is
beholden to how/when upstream does things. I was going to make sure they
knew about what was going on here so they could prepare. In the best of
worlds no one is beholden to anyone. They each work on schedules and
open communication b/t them makes that pretty easy.
