I was waiting for this to come up.  I for one see making updated
packages for a given release as "support" but since the RH site
discusses phone support as a a part of some offerings the term gets used
with different meanings and contexts.  This causes a fair bit of
confusion.  Perhaps as we embark on this exciting adventure of Fedora we
should agree on what terms we are going to use for these two very
different types of support.  I see this as updates vs help but that is
not too clear either.

I need updates but although I have purchased redhat boxed sets since
before 5.0 and cause probably 100 other purchases through
recommendations, I can't recall ever using phone support and the only
interaction I have ever had with RedHat is through bugzilla.

Does anyone else see this as a definition of terms issue?
