I'm sure it was good enough for most developers. However,
it didn't answer the questions some non-developers had.
Maybe you remember the panicked rumours on slashdot the
saturday before rhl.redhat.com went live ?  It wouldn't
be good if those happened again in other audiences, so
the site is being updated to also answer their questions.

No, I can't be much more specific than that. Sorry ;)

All the software we ship is developed as open source, so
moving the distribution itself to an open development
model is only logical.  Don't worry...
