Right, this is Red Hat management problem. They will have to decide on
what to do and we, the community will have to watch for what will
happen.

I'd rather not see this happening, firstly, because this won't always be
applicable (technical complexity) and in second place, because this it
is a double-sided sword (outsourcing).

 I'd prefer RH'd devs to start opening their packages and collaborate
with the community on their packages - IMO, both sides can only mutually
benefit from this in longer terms.
