Thats almost misleading.  My personal request was that while our updates 
wouldn't go in the same _directory_ as those provided by Red Hat, we 
would have another folder in the tree just for us, so that once the 
folder RH controls is no longer populated, our folder would begin to be 
populated.  Not sure if this is feasible or agreeable by Red Hat, I'm 
still waiting to get on the mirror list.

I'll bring up the trademark issues today and see if I can't get some 
answers.
