You are correct, and this brings up another question... will the version
number of the next Red Hat Linux remain secret as it has in the past, or
will it be released as part of the newly-open schedule?

If the future version number (10 or X or 10.0 or 9.1 or whatever the
choices are) were made known, this would help out people at projects
like http://www.fedora.us, who have to think very carefully about the
naming scheme for their packages, so they can upgrade nicely while still
being compatible with Red Hat's.
