How else would you call stealing then? A Red Hat employee has grabbed
my package and used it for RHEL - so far, so good.
I'd call it... forking? :)
It would be nice courtesy for RH to notify maintainers when this
happens, but by no means a requirement.
They certainly do themselves a disservice however by pissing off
contributors through this sort of behavior (where at least they don't
even reply to queries -- I know someone has had a ticket open in bz
assigned to whoever took their EPEL package and it's never been touched
A little PR would go a long way I think.
Probably preaching to the crowd here...
