I never said they didn't.  But once it becomes RHEL, very few new
features/technologies will introduced into that codebase.

For most "Mission Critical" servers, reinstalling ~1 a year is not desired.

The post wasn't about "Red Hat" the company, it was about RHEL, the
distribution.

Different lists are created so that the people interested in a particular
topic can have a list to discuss it.  Over generalizing the list (you
know, like posting stuff about a completely different distribution) will
just lead to this list becoming a bigger mess than it is already.
