(That the Ubuntu bug triagers actually *did* find the kernel patch is impressive.)

That it worked as intended in Fedora from the beginning should not be a huge surprise because the "Audio Terrorist" (???) is the main PA developer, works for Red Hat, is the Fedora maintainer and wrote the kernel patch. Even if you have every reason to point out that Ubuntu themselves prevented a painless integration of rtkit because, for instance, they choose to include non-free kernel modules -- I don't know about that, haven't followed it closely -- it would be good to realize that wherever there is integration, some kind of conflict is inevitable. Indeed, it happens all over the place.
All that makes your comment to the OP's message and your follow-up somewhat ironic, especially given your affiliation with the Fedora project. That's not marketing, that's just creating noise.
FWIW, like orabidoo I am not particularly favourable of any distribution. If I appear to defend Ubuntu it is because some people feel the need to pick on it without providing correct or logical arguments; I remember doing the same for Red Hat ten years ago.
