The difference here is that the resources for GNOME (or anything else Red Hat
needs for future versions of RHEL) are
provided by Red Hat. So if you want the spins to the logically the same in
terms of resources we should start demanding
that any spin set up needs to provide an annual monetary contribution to help
pay for the Fedora infrastructure and team.
So you mean to say the software(already existing in the repos) which is not
of interest for red hat should pay to stay for fedora infrastructure and
Team to stay in the fedora repos?
This looks like clear business motive and no point in calling it a community
project at all.
What I mean to say is that Red Hat has a business motive to support the Fedora community,
if supporting Fedora was a pure act of charity then I think organizations like the Red
or Unicef would have a much better chance of getting the money.
So if the Fedora community wants to not care about why Red Hat invests in Fedora they are
of course free to do so,
but it becomes quite disingenuous to later be surprised if Red Hat loses interest in
