I suppose that "/etc/redhat-release" is not as well-known a concept as
he or I had thought. As I understand it, it's a file that's
maintained by the Redhat installation software to show, in an easy
human-readable way, what is currently installed on the running system.
It is only updated by new installs run on the machine. I think that
some other distributions put something in /etc/motd.
