I have to agree with you one once a company changes the code then they own
it. However wrapping the same old software in an RPM to me does not change
it enough to have "someone" else own the code.
I do find it "funny" that sendmail and BIND have been thrown out in the
e-mails (don't think it was you) But these two applications are some of
the most buggy bits of code ever written.
There are far better aplications out there if someone want to run a mail
or dns server if you ask me.
Sendmail and Bind have been riddled with bugs, this is true, but I don't
know if I'd label them some of the most buggy bits of code ever written. :)
But, as you said, there are far better choices out there -- and Red Hat
(hypothetically speaking, of course) has the choice to distribute those
instead of sendmail/bind.
Full-Disclosure - We believe in it.
