Guys ... let's try not to have a license fight again on the list.
Sometimes these things get way out of hand.

This list is not a place for legal advise .. let's let the attorneys who
actually know the law and the maintainers of programs decide what
license they use and what it means.

Whatever is in RHEL sources, that is what will be in official CentOS
Linux .. and if you want something else (ie, ZFS) .. then get like
minded people and start a SIG to maintain that for CentOS on the
CentOS-devel mailing list.
