Well, the wording I originally wrote assumes knowledge of the relation
between RHEL and derivative/repackaging distributions.  Obviously a bad
assumption, feel free to correct it and move on.  There really isn't a
concern about safe wording.  If you think it matters, include that there
is not requirement to support non-RHEL-based distros (such as Debian
derivatives, Gentoo derivatives, etc.)
