|That may yet happen, but the Fedora project is going to have to open up
|significantly before it can begin to shake off its image (in some quarters,
|at least) as a beta test program for Red Hat's enterprise products. With
|luck and work, perhaps Fedora can begin to approach Debian's level of
|community involvement. If this can be done while retaining Fedora's rather
|more predictable release schedule, so much the better.

I think that to some quarters, that if Red Hat were to ditch rpms and make fedora a debian based project (or just adopt debian outright)... Debian would then get the label of just being a beta test for their Enterprise products.

((Money || Commercial) == Evil) for the most vocal of them.

Fedora is in many ways a beta test system for Red Hat's Enterprise products. But that doesn't mean that it can't be quite valuable to the community as a whole in any case, or that Red Hat wouldn't benefit by opening up more.
