There was no "inception of Fedora project"
FC is a Red Hat Linux child, it has benefited a lot from this fact,
writing off all this history like this is very bad form.

Some form of Red Hat Linux continuity was a very big unwritten Fedora
objective. And till recently (as lwn.net pointed out) there was precious
little of anything else going on (not that people weren't working hard
behind the scenes, but a large number of FC1/FC2/FC3 users weren't there
for the yet-to-happen extras repository)
