Depends on how you look at it really.  It's worth discussion anyway.

By that definition, the primary arches don't qualify either.  They're
built using RHEL + koji.  Not that I really argue with the definition
mind you.  Just interesting from a primary vs. secondary requirements
perspective.

Back in Nov. 2006, there was also the concept that FPB had to approve a
secondary arch release before it could be called Fedora.  Are we
delegating that to FESCo?  This, of course, implies that some form of
review things occurs at some level.
