For what it's worth, when I sent the list I included a reminder that
FOSS is always our strong preference where viable. It was a mistake to
not leave that in as a user story. I own that. I did that because of
the unanimously-adopted[1] Council position that "The Fedora Project
wants to advance free and open source software and as a pragmatic
matter we recognize that some infrastructure needs may be best served
by using closed source or non-free tools today. Therefore the Council
is willing to accept closed source or non-free tools in Fedora’s
infrastructure where free and open source tools are not viable or not

You're right that it should have remained in.

You are absolutely right. I screwed up.
