It’s pretty common that if something supports only one distribution, it’s RedHat-based. That’s also true of hardware vendors.
True, officially, but often not officially. Again, back around 2008 I found it hilariously irritating. HP supported a lot of Debian activity in the background, and hosted quite a lot of the infrastructure. Officially, they only supported Red Hat, but I discovered on a visit to Colorado Springs that they actually developed all their drivers using Debian, and then ported them to Red Hat!
A year or two later, I remember noticing that the firmware update ISOs that HP distributed were also Debian-based. Even though they only distributed Red Hat RPMs on them. Duh!
