In the different threads here in the list - I noticed that everyone
(not all in quantity) has a different definition of production and 
development "classification". For instance RH: Their devel license
talks about not to use it for production. I am still unsure where
the border for that are? Running a workstation and "producing" output
that have value for me is a production system. As also a fly radar
HA cluster running 24/7 is a production system. Anyway, lets see
what Q1 2021 will bring ...
