You make no mention of it being a rebuild of RHEL 9 beta, so are they making their own EL based on F35 or is it based on RHEL 9?

It's not based on RHEL. They're making their own distro which is based on Fedora.

This sounds closer to what CentOS Stream is planning to be but with a 2-year release cadence instead of 3?
