Well RHEL requires licensing, there's CentOS but the current release
of both of the aforementioned have a stable set of packages too old
for Sugar. RHEL-6 might well provide the stability we need but its not
out yet, and the associated CentOS release can be quite a bit delayed.

Its something that is being reviewed but as there is not official
RHEL/CentOS release yet we can't say when that will be.
