Red Hat has permission to distribute, to paying customers, pieces of it
that are not open source.  I need to get permission to strip parts of
that out and distribute the rest.

I have asked for permission and am waiting on the answers of:

1. Can do that (take out some pieces and distribute)

2. If I can do that, are the pieces I took out good enough or do I need
to make more changes.

I want to make this happen and I am trying to do so.  However, I have no
idea what the outcome will be.

One thing is for sure, people are watching me very closely on this ..
therefore I must do it exactly the way they want me to.
