The partial quote above is a total mis-parsing of that paragraph. The paragraph plainly and clearly should be parsed as 'ROSI' is now a third level of Red Hat's already existing support for open source projects; that is, Fedora and CentOS Stream were previous OS choices upstream open source projects could use at no cost, now ROSI is a third. I also read that this sort of arrangement has existed previously and that ROSI is just a formalization of those arrangements (the sentence "We frequently provide no-cost access to RHEL to these groups, but the process isn’t as formalized, consistent, accessible or transparent as we’d like it to be." says that). Fedora and CentOS have quite possibly been using RHEL for some time now (I am not a member of either project's infrastructure team, so I don't know what OS is being used in the infrastructure). The point is clear to me, and I'll paraphrase: If you were using CentOS for your infrastructure in an upstream open-source project, where the license is a Fedora-approved license, you could be eligible for no-cost RHEL to replace your CentOS. Yes, upstream is specifically mentioned (sentence, and not a sentence fragment: "We want RHEL to be used broadly in upstream open source development, both as a testing platform and as a stable foundation for development. "). An RHEL rebuild is not "upstream open source development."
