What is the relationship between GCC and Cygnus / Red Hat?


I believe by having the following entry in our FAQ, we actually reach the
opposite of what it was originally ment to -- namely calm fears of Red Hat
controlling GCC -- and I believe the situation has sufficiently changed
since then, so I would like to remove it.

However, this is my personal opionion, so I'd like to hear what others
think about it, especially folks from Red Hat and competing companies!
