A while ago, when the topic of training and certification was being 
discussed (one of the times that it was being discussed), from memory, 
someone from Red Hat was subscribed to this list.

Is that person still subscribed to this list?

An issue involving the use of Red Hat Linux has arisen, where it appears 
that people are no longer allowed to make copies of Red Hat Linux and 
distribute them (eg, making a copy and passing it on to a friend/fellow 
Linux user), and the issue would be good to have clarified by someone 
from Red Hat. It appears and has been suggested, that the current Red 
Hat licensing has abandoned or contravenes the GPL in the apparent 
prohibition from copying and redistributing Red Hat Linux.

Thus, clarification from Red Hat, if a person from Red Hat is still 
subscribed to this list, would be good.
