A guy that no longer works at Red Hat rants and you consider it the official Red Hat position?

Some Gnome statistics were published, and some are spinning it 
as "Redhat contributes 16 to 1 more than Canonical".

For example: ex-Community manager for Redhat:

I find reducing "contribution" to being defined by amount of patches or lines


of code to be at least myopic and/or biased.

Redhat exited the consumer desktop market a long time ago, and Ubuntu
filled in that void. They package and polish existing software into a good
product, and built a community around it. That is their contribution, not just


code ...

This the first time that notice unhealthy rivalry between Canonical and Redhat,
or has this been going on for a long time. If it is recent, what triggered it?
