Yes, but always with luv! ;-)
It's the kind of attention Hillary and Rudy would die for.

That begs two questions.
You seem to be suggesting that MythRHEL could be spun off RHEL5 in
exactly the same way Centos was spun off, by removing RH proprietary
material and substituting original replacements. Is that correct?
Is a custom build of pungi built in response to a paying customer's
request still open source, or is it RH proprietary? I know how IBM
would view that but how does RH see it?
