As Daimler learned from the UAW at Chrysler, if they think you have
money, they will ask for it.  Now that it's no longer Daimler-Chrysler
and just Chrysler, the UAW ain't asking for it any more.  Why?  Because
they still need Chrysler, their employer.  ;)

Same deal.  Events will ask for money from Fedora(TM) if they think Red
Hat(R) will provide.  If Red Hat(R) will not, then they will still
invite Fedora(TM).  Why?  Because the events still need Fedora(TM).  ;)

I really need to write an "unofficial/non-sanctioned" Fedora(TM) and Red
Hat(R) FAQ like I did in the past to explain this stuff.  I would open
it up for commentary for accuracy, etc...

Until then ...
  Fedora(TM) exists for a reason, many times on its own  ;)
