Same as it has always been.  RHEL is not Fedora and discussions about it
don't belong on the Fedora list.

You have missed the posts suggesting Ubuntu or Gentoo?

So was can look forward to you copying the list on announcements about
RHEL's different certifications in the future?  Why stop there, why not
just send us daily stock updates, too?

This list isn't about Red Hat the company, RHEL, or anything else that
isn't _Fedora_!

So using a SUSE RPM on my Fedora means it is the same as SUSE?  Using
VMWare's RPMs on Fedora means VMWare is the same as Fedora?

Yes, where RHEL is off-topic.
