Description: MBROLA is a speech synthesizer based on the concatenation of diphones. It takes a list of phonemes as input, together with prosodic information (duration of phonemes and a piecewise linear description of pitch), and produces speech samples on 16 bits (linear), at the sampling frequency of the diphone database.

After discussions with upstream and consultations with Fedora-legal mailing list we have come to conclusion that Mbrola can not be packaged into Fedora because of non-free voice files. Mbrola does not provide without them reasonable amount of functionalities so it depends on them.
Upstream said that maintainers listed in voice files are not responding and without their consent they can not change their license.
