Would Red Hat be happy hosting significant branches for other companies?

FYI, it isn't a Red Hat decision.

I assume you're referring to the repository, right?

I think the answer is "yes", so long as the branch in question is
intended to (eventually) further mainline gdb development.  If the
branch is just some custom bit of work that is likely to never make
it to the mainline, probably not.

And that decision is up to this group.

Would those other companies be happy depending on Red
Hat's CVS servers?

Should money making corporate types be willing to bet the crown jewls on those same resources (sware, subversion, sourceforge)? Interesting question.

Red Hat makes sourceware available as a public service. It funds it rather than owns it. The machine is adminstered by a group of overseers (chrisf and jasonm are two).
