Could this be related to the Fedora/RHEL security breach, and the subsequent clam-up?

My guess is that Ubuntu has a higher 'sex-appeal' than Debian, etc.

Clam-up? Whatever are you talking about, Bruce? Fedora is a community based distro, completely distinct from such commercial based entities such as Red Hat. Fedora only acts according to *community* wishes.

No. The migration has been ongoing since long before then. If you don't believe me or gmaxwell, you can check the Wikimedia Ubuntu Migration FAQ.

So far there is no hint the Red Hat incident had incidence to anything but Red Hat infrastructure (unlike some distributions that made countless third-parties revise their certificates for example)
