I'm not sure what you read, but CentOS Stream is just going to be
updates from Red Hat that will eventually be incorporated into the
next point release of RHEL and CentOS (non-stream).  The Fedora
involvement is largely upstream from RHEL, although it looks like
there is a roadmap where contributions from the community could come
into RHEL[1].
