Agreed -- but nevertheless *I* still have the impression that Red Hat and Fedora developers work to much with upstream on improving the Linux software stack (which is a good thing in general, but: ) and don't care enough about our distribution specific stuff.

It is just different focus areas. See below.

Ubuntu is much more active in that area and thus has some interesting stuff that we are already still working on (codec buddy) or have on our Roadmap (say: new initsystem).

Ubuntu is pretty much in the same position regarding codec buddy since the library is getting merged with upstream Gstreamer. Fedora has SELinux, Xen, Compiz integration etc. Let's not undersell ourselves unnecessarily. Focusing on one distribution repeatedly is not a good idea either.
