> In private email, and https://github.com/openssl/openssl/pull/8886#issuecomment-494624313 the implication is that this was a policy.
AFAIK this is not the case.
Is the comment wrong, either factually or because it is implementing something that isn't an official policy?

The OMC represents the project not individual fellows. Fellows are employees of the OMC. Therefore there can be conflicts. A hypothetical example, some hires a fellow or two to port OpenSSL to a new unique platform, not currently supported. The OMC doesn't want to support this platform, but it ends up in the source.
I encourage the OMC to consider this question carefully.
