Re:A clarification

"What do you mean, "supported by/backed by""

I didn't say "supported". When I said backed by I was referring to Red Hat paying for bandwidth, engineering resources, upstream development, packaging efforts, infrastructure, marketing etc.

"Red Hat has no support contracts for Fedora. If you are using Fedora and it breaks, there's no one you can call at Red Hat and get support. "

Right. That's called a commercial service level agreement which is available for Red Hat's products like RHEL. Fedora is a community project sponsored by Red Hat. There is a difference.

"This doesn't seem like much of a milestone to me"

That's because a commercial SLA has nothing to do with what I posted. Read the blog post completely if you want to understand the milestone.

"Post another story when Red Hat is taking submissions straight from "the community" and sticking them into RHEL."

Or Red Hat contributing lots of Free software to the community.

<a href="http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RedHatContributions" title="fedoraproject.org">http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RedHatContributions</a fedoraproject.org>

It goes both ways. That is freedom of the license.
