This is a pretty offensive thing to say as you've basically claimed that
I'm attempting to emotionally abuse you and others on the list and goes
well beyond professional candor.

You are closing/removing the RH owned and distributed downstream build

This argument, which I've seen restated and restated, continues to ignore
all the other downstream rebuilds *including* one of Red Hat's competitors
in Oracle.  As soon as you add that to the mix, this argument completely
falls apart.  It's not free "open-builds".  It's open-source.  All of our
source is available because we already pushed it upstream before we
released it and then again in our downstream build.  Just like Red Hat, you
are welcome to embrace and extend it. And, just like Red Hat you can't
extinguish it.
