I would imagine it's because in relative terms they have a very large
maintainer base in Fedora. The recurring spins process page says
"This process safe-guards that at least somebody looks at the spin
itself as well as the Spin page, and prevents major changes to the
spin from going unnoticed. It is not like all recurring spins will
have to go through the entire review process step-by-step once more."
This step is in the process to ensure somebody looks at the spin, rather
then make assumptions and exceptions to the process, based on the number
of people we think may be involved in the Spin.
There are a (relatively) huge number of people providing this
assurance already. Is there appreciable value in adding more steps to
I would rather have the SIG be in a position to make the assumption that
the Desktop and KDE spins are safe and well-cared of rather then the
Fedora Project itself doing so, and I would want to eliminate the
"exception to the normal process" for these spins so that we have one
less exception to the rules.
