That's assuming that every part of Red Hat has the same plan / goal as every 
other part of Red Hat, and that isn't always the case.  The JBoss folks have 
a goal to continue delivering things to their existing customers that they 
were before RH acquired them.  Fedora has a different set of goals, which 
involves native packaging of JBOSS software for use on Fedora.  These are 
just two examples of what the two groups might have for goals.  There are 
many many others, and surprise, some of them may directly conflict.  
Thankfully different people will be working on them differently and there is 
a chance that these goals may be achieved.
