But you are not talking about access to source code here .. you are
taking about access to a paid support website for customers for
knowledge base articles.

The Source Code .. heck, even Binary rpms, exist and were installed in
this case .. completely for free from CentOS Linux.  What is being
complained about is no access to documentation for paid customers to fix
issues with RHEL .. not to fix something in CentOS Linux.  This list and
wiki.centos.org and forums.centos.org are where the CentOS Community can
develop open source, free documentation for these issues for CentOS Linux.

Red Hat certainly understands open source .. as shown by this:

  (github commits)

and this:

  (kernel commits)

The same holds true for any number of important projects .. gcc, etc.

I love open source .. that is why I have been doing CentOS binaries
since 2004.  I totally believe in open source.  It has. in fact, taken
over the world of Information Technology much to my delight.
