No FESCo approval is needed for this action.

FESCo granted approval to the overall process 2 years ago:

It is more accurate, because the meaning for "rawhide" changed once the
branch happened, because it is then targeting F14 and not F13. So if
bug was changed from F13 to rawhide after the branch event, changing it
back to F13 is just plain wrong. And the proposed single query does not
catch this.
