And there is no RedHat if thousands of developers would not allow RedHat
to consume their work for free. Creators of free software didn't build
walls around their projects. Do you thinks it's a good thing that RedHat
does exactly this with their tip and tricks (KB)? I believe it can damage
RedHat because a lot of people at the source of RedHats products don't
appreciate it at all.
