Description of problem:

coverage contains SGML DTDs that seem to be non-free.
Quoting from one of these files:

> Portions (C) International Organization for Standardization 1986:
> Permission to copy in any form is granted for use with
> conforming SGML systems and applications as defined in
> ISO 8879, provided this notice is included in all copies.

Please remove non-free content from Fedora.

Comment 1 Tom "spot" Callaway 2012-08-27 19:41:59 UTC
While the ISO license is clearly non-free, Red Hat Legal advises that it is a non-issue here because these files are too trivial (or too functional and non-expressive) to be copyrightable or more than de minimis copyrightable.
