Perhaps no fork would be required. RH could release tight control of Fedora
for its own interest.
Otherwise, I am afraid, RH is forcing Fedora into irrelevance.
There is a need for an independent distro like Fedora (of a RH-like base)
that can breathe, function, and be governed on its own, and define up front or
acquire these important characteristics:
- uncompromised adherence to UNIX-like principles of development (no chance of
compromise here - a matter of writing it into its status)
- identity of its own (yes, that means getting rid of the de facto "testing
bed for RH" one)
- being attractive to devs and users who would share the above UNIX-like goal
- be modern but stable by choice (offer more recent kernel in comparison to
RHEL/CentOS/SL, together with more thoughtful choice of software), which
would fill in the current void in RH-like base of distros
Such Fedora would actually be helpful to RH-like base among distros.
