See the GPL. If you modify GPL source code, it's still GPL. So if you distribute the binaries, which are GPL, you must make the the source available, and cannot restrict redistribution of either. The only redistribution limits are:
1) Red Hat's tradmarks (like the ShadowMan logo, and the name)
2) non-GPL code included with the distro, like IBM's JVM.
So Red Hat says the _SOFTWARE_ is GPL. So I copy, modify, and redistribute according the the GPL. I've asked sales about it. waiting for a reply.I read the "certain image files" mentioned in the first paragraph of Appendix 1 to be the IBM JDK mentioned in the second paragraph:
Since there seems to be no differentiation of trademark useage between RHL and RHEL, the usual redistribution guidelines apply. And I take that to mean the JDK is the biggest barrier to binary redistribution.
