Max mentioned a phrase in a previous mail this week that I think is incredibly applicable here: Institutional memory. Many of us have been around a while; most of the previous respondents to these emails, far longer than I have. Those folks participating and contributing to the aforementioned threads, by and large, know that they can Go Forth and Do without seeking board blessings; inherently know what resources are available; more or less have a gut feeling on when they should or shouldn't apply for funding for an international FUDCon; know who to ask for resources; etc.
None of this is readily apparent to anyone who shows up on the proverbial doorstep of the Fedora Community, wanting to actually do something. Most people who do show up, of course, just want to contribute in some way, but eventually, many of those folks move beyond smaller contributions, and move into Bigger Things Territory.
While I largely agree with David's previously stated point of view that the majority of power to direct or effect change in Fedora lies with the people doing the work, I think that it is certainly in the Board's interest to ensure that community members are enabled to actually get the work done.
