so, we complain that companies don't contribute enough upstream, and
when a big team of developers from one company works on a new project,
we don't like it? So what's the problem, that we want more non-RH people
working on it? Since the development has been open for more than a year,
I don't see anything preventing non-RH people to do so.

As for giving responsibilities to a group of individuals, it is what
happens in all GNOME modules. So, I don't see why we would need a board
for gnome-shell and not for gnome-control-center, nautilus or others, or
are you suggesting to add a huge bureaucracy for every non-trivial
change/development that we do?
