Sorry, no. GPL talks about passing source code if you distribute a changed version, not original source code, changes, and running commentary. So here Red Hat has historically done much more than was asked for (distributing to all comers, distributing upstream source and individual patches), now they are still doing more than strictly required. Again the ages old discussion: If you distribute your stuff under $LICENSE, you can't then complain if somebody does what said $LICENSE allows.
