I don't understand that logic. Why wouldn't you want to maintain it in
Fedora just because you are upstream?
Because I think that being upstream and the primary maintainer of a
package in fedora (or any distro) is not a very good idea. If there are
conflict of interest between upstream and the distro (think about name
space, install paths, quality), I think that having a maintainer who is
not the primary upstream maintainer is a good thing. Having upstream
co-maintain, or even do the packaging work is a good idea, but I think
that upstream should not have the last saying for the package.
