Description T.C. Hollingsworth 2013-08-23 00:32:05 EDT
This package contains binary files that are typically excuted by the Flash
player or another similar program.

These files are not permitted in Fedora. [1]  Everything we produce needs to
be built from source. [2]

The offending file(s) shipped in this package are:

If these files are just a fallback for something that is now supported by modern
web standards like the HTML5 <video> element, please just remove the binaries.

If removing these files would seriously cripple your application, please let me
know so we can figure out a solution.

If you have any questions, please shout.  Thanks!

Did you check for and  fix this on existing branches (f18, f19, el5, el6) too? Just fixing it for the future is not really enough in the case of a serious licensing issue.
