I agree with this but the fact is that I don't see any of that even
mentioned in press releases and similar reporting except for the
connection to RHEL which is why people not inside the project come to
think it is only about RHEL. And, of course, the many people who
contribute without external affiliations to other identifiable parts
of this ecosystem are always left out.
If we can find a way to broaden this sort of message I'm all for that.
What benefits do you see the RHEL clones bringing to the ecosystem?
I see them doing actually quite the opposite ( reduce income for red hat
which in turn is reflected in fewer ( upstream ) maintainers )
I see more value in them in the eco system coming here and maintain an
Fedora LTS release then maintaining those clones
