    Matthew Miller - Discussions on the Purchase of Red Hat by IBM, impact on Fedora

    Today marks a new day in the 26-year history of Red Hat. IBM has
    finalized its acquisition of Red Hat, which will operate as a distinct
    unit within IBM.

    What does this mean for Red Hatís participation in the Fedora Project?

    In short, nothing.

    Red Hat will continue to be a champion for open source, just as it
    always has, and valued projects like Fedora that will continue to play
    a role in driving innovation in open source technology. IBM is
    committed to Red Hatís independence and role in open source software
    communities. We will continue this work and, as always, we will
    continue to help upstream projects be successful and contribute to
    welcoming new members and maintaining the project.

    In Fedora, our mission, governance, and objectives remain the same. Red
    Hat associates will continue to contribute to the upstream in the same
    ways they have been.

    We will do this together, with the community, as we always have.

    If you have questions or would like to learn more about todayís news, I
    encourage you to review the materials below. For any questions not
    answered here, please feel free to contact us. Red Hat CTO Chris Wright
    will host an online Q&A session in the coming days where you can ask
    questions you may have about what the acquisition means for Red Hat and
    our involvement in open source communities. Details will be announced
    on the Red Hat blog.

    Threads in the news section don't get many responses. I suggest starting a "IBM acquires Red Hat" thread in the Linux Chat section.
    "Never let the task you are trying to accomplish distract you from the study of computers."

    Actually, there's no need to respond. Done deal, and it's just an explanation. Nothing we're in a position to modify anyhow.
