Indeed, the GPL *only* requires they provide the source to people
they've provided the binaries to. RH offers the source to *anyone*, thus
going a bit *beyond* the GPL in that regard.

What most fail to realize is that RH in RHEL have a few things such a a
JRE they is NOT under GPL. Take those out, take out the RH Trademarks,
and you can build/use/distribute the resulting distribution yourself. To
lazy/busy to do that? Well, that's your choice.
