As for the rest, it really is a question on whether all of sourceware 
will in the end be migrated over to LF, it's for the remaining projects 
to decide.  If we indeed have all projects on board then I agree, 
perhaps we then need to ask Red Hat to hand sourceware over to the LF 
and call the project "Sourceware Infrastructure Project" or just Sourceware.

It would be nice to hear from these folks on what parts were withheld 
from them.

That part is not in conflict, calling it the "Sourceware project" is.
