http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_Engineering probably answers a
number of your questions.

I interpret 'Fedora personel' as people being paid to work on Fedora,
which the above wiki page covers. There are, of course, a very large
number of people that volunteer their time to work on various things
in Fedora as well.

At RH there is also the FPL (paid position at RH, filled via applications, both
internal and external) and the Fedora Progra Manager (paid position at RH,
filled via applications, both internal and external.)

Generally, for any of these paid positions at RH, announcements will go out
to Planet Fedora at the least, and occasionally the list. Other companies
may have roles in Fedora they pay people for, and that is up to them how
they advertise it.

I believe the Fedora rel-eng lead is handled the same way. The reason
none of those 3 positions are listed on the wiki page is that they do
not have Spot as their manager. It's something we could add to the
page for clarification purposes though.

The question seems to use a biased either/or question that someone
filling the position will either be a RH employee or a community
member where it could be a community member that is hired by RH
specifically for this job. Just because someone gets hired by RH
doesn't mean they are no longer a community member, IMO.
