I think I told you that at the SugarCamp in Paris, because at this
time, that's what the rumours were about:
http://lwn.net/Articles/306807/ (that's the link I had given you at
that time, specifically saying that it was only a guess)

The problem is that we (Fedora) have absolutely no way to know for
sure what the next RHEL will be based on: that's Red Hat's business.

So all we can do is try to guess, but depending on their own
constraints, business, clients, etc... the rumours often change as
time goes :)

If you want to know that for sure, you should ask Red Hat about it. ;)

Actually, I read that more as « RHEL 6 will be based on F13 or a
future version of Fedora ». But like Spot says, we can't draw any
