Re: why o why [off topic]



Hi


Red Hat clearly possesses exclusive legal rights to Red Hat Enterprise Linux, namely the exclusive legal right to distribute RHEL in binary form, and most importantly, the accompanying exclusive legal right to pass along the ISV certifications associated with the RHEL binary distribution. Red Hat uses a legal vehicle, a cleverly crafted license it calls a subscription agreement, to enable it to possess these exclusive legal rights in a product that can continue to be marketed as open source.

Quoting Ian from Progeny doesnt mean anything here. Trademark guidelines are established for many other open source projects including Mozilla and Apache. Red Hat merely asks you not to distribute any products under its name.




I an NOT talking about shipping some propreitry software .....I am referring to supporting ...so please dont mis quote me or be more off topic !!

I am talking about documenting proprietary software as part of a project which supports open source software exclusively. I havent misquoted you at all and whether proprietary software should be documented as part of the Fedora docs project is not a off topic discussion.



"The goal of The Fedora Project <http://fedora.redhat.com/participate/terminology.html> is to work with the Linux community to build a *complete, general purpose* operating system"


"Complete" which means fedora can be used in any enviorment that includes data center or enterprises... many people companies specially ISP run on fedora in their data center ....


You missed out the part about being "exclusively free software"

http://fedora.redhat.com/about/

" The goal of The Fedora Project is to work with the Linux community to build a complete, general purpose operating system exclusively from open source software."

"I guess redhat does not treats fedora as lab rat for upcoming rhel solely "

straw man argument since RHEL documentation doesnt cover proprietary software either
