Re: We are evaluating building packages from Fedora Extras for RHEL

If RedHat is the organization that is going to get the most benefit out of this, and they want to encourage it, Red Hat stock options for maintainers taking care of the packages for this long would be the typical incentive, since developers are investing part of their sparetime for 7 years in RH:s success.

I know this would probably be tricky in the internationalized context, and I don't know if RH really likes the idea of EE that much. However it would certainly mean that you could trust the developers that go through all the legal paperwork to achieve this and remove a few other problems.

People talk so much about incentives, money's just fine, really.

Now I don't think RH want my packages so bad they'd do this, more typically select a few extra important package maintainers and throw this at them would be ideal.

Just my Euro 0.01...
