Hi there.
I will let this block FE-LEGAL to check if having a piece of software that allows you to install proprietary/patent encumbered stuff in Fedora is okay.

This seems like a nice tool for beginners though.

Comment 2 homerxing 2010-01-10 12:10:02 UTC
Dear Felix,

Many Ubuntu users like this tool. I hope that it will be accepted by Fedora.

Moreover, it is being actively developed. The developers will modify the source code according to the requirements from the Fedora community. :)

I hope that this tool will pass the FE-LEGAL check.

Comment 3 Tom "spot" Callaway 2010-01-25 15:56:55 UTC
Yeah. This isn't going to pass the FE-Legal check. We cannot include anything in the Fedora repositories that points to these third party repositories, this crosses the line from information to contributory infringement.

Sorry. :(
