And, perhaps FESCO would feel differently about the impact of things if
THEY relied upon Fedora. I refer to minutes from one of the FESCO
meetings where they discussed the issue. The point was raised that
Fedora Infrastructure utilized Zope. But, the counter was that Fedora
Infrastructure servers use RHEL5, so no problem. Sounds like the U. S.
Congress making sure that they aren't impacted by their own decisions.
