I have spoken with Doug Ledford via email and he is still onboard with bringing RHEL testing into UNH-IOL for OFS compatibility and functionality.  He is also still thinking RH will join the OFA.

I have not heard from SUSE recently.  We (OFA/UNH-IOL) provided a quote long ago that was not acceptable to them.  It was after that conversation that the OFA Board tentatively approved funding UNH-IOL to adopt a more modern/industry-standard test framework.  The IWG will be actively pursuing that now that InterOp and PlugFest are behind us.

New quotes and outreach between us and the distros has been prioritized now that UNH-IOL can come up for air.
