I've never seen RedHat. But I don't think we should consider ourselves
to be somehow 'better' than RedHat: if they have a good idea, I don't
see any point in not using it just because some RedHat people had it,
instead of a Debian developer.
This "forum" certainly isn't the only place where new good ideas can
be conceived. And if another Linux distribution uses ideas developed
here, we shouldn't consider it stealing, even in quotes. Co-operation
is something that ought to be possible between distributions.
