Description Bill Nottingham 2007-10-09 13:27:28 EDT
The attached patch changes the Fedora-specific codeina dialog, based on
recommendations from the Board:

- removes explicit references to Fluendo/webshop. It still goes there, but this
has less explicit branding. Allows it to easily work nicer in F9 when there are
more options as well.
- changes the wording some about free/patented formats
- adds a link where users can go to get more information

The patch does not touch the non-Fedora code at all. With this patch, the
package needs to add:

Requires: python-sexy

as it's needed for the URL label.

I'd rather have content behind http://fedoraproject.org/codecbuddy/ before
making a decision on that.

I don't have any strong opinions on the wording, or removal of Fluendo branding
from the Fedora dialogue.
Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2007-10-15 15:58:06 EDT
So, the final freeze is upon us. We should either get content up on the wiki, or
commit the patch without the link. 
Comment 6 Karsten Wade 2007-10-15 17:28:02 EDT
The nice thing about the wiki/website is that we can change the content easily.
 Let's definitely *not* commit the patch without the link.  I'll float this to
f-docs-l and we'll have a draft up in a few days; something that is better than

If any of you have any thoughts about what should or shouldn't be said on that
page, I recommend you put a watch on CodecBuddy on the wiki.
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2007-10-16 15:17:31 EDT
Some content added to the wiki page. The fact that we can't embed the video
might mean we redirect this somewhere static - the patch to codeina does *not*
need to be changed for this (it's already pointing to a redirectable URL.)
