I 100% agree, and would like to use a chance to praise RedHat for its
brilliant attitude to open source (GNU licensed specifically). During my
over 1.5 decades I myself noticed meticulous following the terms of open
source software (OSS) by RedHat, and keeping whatever OSS it acquired
exactly what its is without changes that would make one stop using it. (As
opposed to the reasons you will find about some companies if you follow
Johnny's advise).

[OK, systemd and friends do not fall into above, and they are not acquired
but written by themselves, and let's keep what we think of it to
