Well, personally I would never see it if it were on redhat-list.
There's far too much traffic there for me to handle.

Another thing about this thread on anaconda-devel-list is that nearly
all the non-Red Hat people on list here are making local
modifications, and these trademark matters concern them - especially
if they are productizing modified Red Hat Linux for the marketplace.

Finally, the policy we have to take on this is mostly that of legal
requirements put on us by trademark law.  If we allowed anyone to
enter into the marketplace with products which use our trademark then
we are not adequately protecting it.
