Hi Joey,

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.
