Why? I'm not a RH employee, so any decisions on what goes into RHEL is
*way* above my pay grade :).  Somehow I don't think that Sugar will
ever be in RHEL, however - it's just not something that's designed for
the enterprise, nor I think is there a desire on anyone's part to
support any one version of it for 7 years.

However, there is a repository called EPEL (Extra Packages for
Enterprise Linux) where it could fit, if someone is willing to package
it. The only issues that I foresee there is if Sugar requires a newer
version of Python than what's available in RHEL, then that would be a
non-starter
