Hats off to the RH Fedora guys

Dear Fedorans,

There's an old expression: When the going gets tough; the tough get going.

The hardcore Fedora guys here at RH have been as tough, determined, 
hard-working and resilient as I have ever seen.  It is a privilege to 
work among them.  They didn't ask for a week of grief. They didn't 
deserve a week of grief.  This burden was inflicted on them through no 
fault of their own. Through it all they have risen to the occasion and 
gone well beyond.  In addition, they have at all times had the interests 
and spirit of the community front and center.

Because this is an ongoing investigation I am unable to articulate their 
individual heroics in detail.  If you have been lucky enough to meet any 
of them at Fudcon, OLS, a local LUG meeting or online, you know who I'm 
talking about. You know the magic they perform.  We at Red Hat are proud 
of every one of them. We stand behind them shoulder to shoulder 100%.

Inside the walls of Red Hat, the word "heroes" has almost never been 
used.  Glad we saved it for these guys.

In deep admiration
Tim Burke, Director Linux Development ,
