Massive team of developers

So I have a little bit of trouble seeing what the "massive team of developers" at Red Had provides
For a start, Red Hat is the biggest employer of kernel developers. For example in 2.6.30
: 11% of the changesets and 5% of the lines come from it, not to speak of 42% of signed-off lines.
But as others have pointed out Red Hat is mostly known as the source of CentOS packages and security fixes. It also publishes almost all its work as free software and is a model company in the area. I am a Debian user and prefer it to Red Hat, but there is a lot of value in having a corporate provider. There are a lot of repackagers so nobody is forced to pay Red Hat for support; people do it because they want to. What is your problem?
