I dont buy this argument.

CentOS is _rebuilding_ . Does not matter how the source is represented
in my understanding.

Anyway, I found an article where Russ Herold is quoted about the matter


May I quote:

"We haven't at all restricted CentOS's ability to grab source code and
recompile it and clean-out trademarks and package it. It's just some of
the knowledge of the insides that we're hiding," he explains. One
longtime CentOS developer agrees.

"I'll not lose sleep on the matter," CentOS co-founder Russ Herold tells
The Reg.

Kind Regards, Markus Falb
