I don't know how relevant any of the data on oswatershed even is, but
I believe the Fedora and Red Hat continues to drive a lot of upstream
development.  That is much more important than who chucks the latest
build over the wall to users.

When the folks at Archlinux update to the latest release of some
project the day it comes out, they can often thank some Fedora
contributors for making the upstream release possible. :)

As I understand it, we Fedoraites are Red Hat's triple-A farm team and
experimental lab rats.  Once we get a good, stable Fedora release with
lots of new features, then it's grabbed and becomes a Red Hat Enterprise
release.

I think Red Hat is still the most used "commercial" Linux distro, so a
lot of the upstream activity is caused by us Fedoraites causing changes.

That's just my opinion...I could be wrong.
