Submission UNIX 03 Certified Inspur K-UX is RHEL Under the Hood

An anonymous reader writes: Last week, I browsed through the list of certified UNIX 03 vendors. A new company I haven't heard of called Inspur Co., Ltd was granted a certificate last December for K-UX 2.0.

I wanted to learn more but was unable to find any download site or product manuals. After more research, I ran across this page:

It's in Chinese, so you have to use Chrome to translate the page. The wording of this page reads almost as if it's instructions on how to turn RHEL 6.4 rpms into Inspur K-UX rpms.

If you follow the Inspur rpms, they match RHEL 6.4 rpms. For example:

binutils- (for Inspur K-UX)
binutils- (for RHEL)

Can another company take RHEL, rebrand as their own and go through the certification process to make them UNIX 03 compliant through The Open Group?

Can you take RHEL, repackage/rebrand and call it proprietary UNIX? Inspur does!

Doesn't this technically make RHEL 6.4 UNIX 03 compliant, too?
