If I understand this correctly, RedHat put it's RPM software under a non-GPL 
copyright, and source is unavailable. The .deb software is completely GPL,
one more reason why Debian is the official GNU FSF Linux :)

Speaking of the FSF, is any work being done on making a Debian GNU Hurd
distribution? Is it expected in the future?
