I joined the fedora mailing lists and theres been a lot of discussion
including some really good summaries. The upshot is:
"fedora project" - will be like the Debian testing branch with
folks from RH mostly taking the lead on coordinating releases,
choosing packages which packages/vers go in, writing docs,
etc. RH will *NOT* be selling or formally supporting (in terms
of service contracts) the Fedora Project in a direct fashion.
RHEL (of which there are currently 3 flavors) will be like Debian
stable and will be sold and supported by RH for relatively long
release cycles. RHEL will, over time, "absorb" the versions of
packages that are used/tested/etc in the fedora project.
