Novell says it is relaxed about Red Hat's changes to how it distributes the source code for Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL).

The move was, said Red Hat, in response to competitors offering to support RHEL as part of their own service offerings.

Novell though does not see Red Hat's changes as a problem.
