Fair enough - it is kind of hard to explain what it is a clone of if you're not allowed to use the R-word, but I'll make a conscious effort to instead apply a long and convoluted explanation instead in the future without mentioning the R-word.
Even the "Red" in "RedSleeve" might be implication enough for them to be concerned. CentOS and the others have already learned this lesson. Note: I'm not complaining about the port, just warning you about the name.
Names are easy to change at this stage, and I have a backup name in mind should it become an issue. :)
Also, you're much better off porting CentOS instead - they've already done the work of removing trademarked graphics and such, giving you a legally clean slate to work off. Why duplicate the effort?
In retrospect, that might have saved some re-branding effort, but at this point weeding out the last of the branding references shouldn't be too difficult. The redhat-logos package (the only one explicitly listed that I have in my distro) has already been re-worked to remove all RH related graphics.
