No, all the merit is due to Fedora contributors and our efforts to 
improve the quality of the overall distro.
Fedora is *community-driven*, implying that RHEL7 may be one of the 
cause of that success is rude to the contributors whether they are paid 
or not by Red Hat.

"In cauda venenum"
Please read Fedora mission statement:

"The Fedora Project's mission is to *lead* the advancement of free and 
open source software and content as a collaborative community." 
(emphasis is mine)

I'm proud that we did these disruptive changes, because if we didn't, 
they might never have happened.
Many Fedora contributors feel the same (and a consequent number disagree 
We're not doing to get the first place, just to bring and help mature 
the changes we feel right: systemd is one of them. And what happened 
later proved us that we were right.

Best regards,
