I think you're talking about "given power" and I think Jesse is more
talking about "expert power".  We cannot make mandates to RHEL, and in
that way we have no control over it.  But the quality of our work often
speaks for itself and goes, unaltered, into RHEL.  And in that way, we
certainly shape the outcome of what RHEL is.
