You really know not of what you speak here, and it shows. I recall the old build system and
source repositories, and they were definitely not something you'd just switch over to the
other side of the DMZ and ring the bell for dinner. It took a lot of time and effort for the
ISIT team to build out infrastructure to bootstrap everything, for Legal to ensure that
nothing lurked in there that could either bite RH or encumber the nascent Fedora project, for
community structures to be formalised - all the hard work you seem to casually discount.
You really are making a habit of sinking the slipper into anything vaguely Red Hat-ish,
despite your protestations otherwise.
