Description of problem:

Hi Martin, I had talked to you a little bit about this idea yesterday.

Both the welcome screen and the license information screens in first boot have no action the user can take other than to skip them. It could be perceived that Fedora is wasting the user's time by forcing them to click through things. 

Furthermore, there is way too much legal text on screen, and it is too prominent. It takes up a large chunk of space. There is nothing you can do on the license information screen but click forward. It's quite unlikely most users will want to read the text. Legal text can be intimidating and we don't want to intimidate our users.

I have gotten approval from Fedora legal to merge both the welcome screen and license information screen into one screen, and to hide the majority of the license information behind a disclosure triangle. I've speced the changes out in this wiki page:


I've also created some mockups to show the suggested changes:

We've got approval from translators to make the string changes past the freeze for f13, see trans thread:
