Then *why* do you want to push content into Fedora when there is no gain versus getting it from upstream?

You're reading stuff I didn't write.

Am I? Let's see...

"We want more free content."
"I would welcome a collection of music in the appropriate license and the appropriate formats. That would enhance our music players. That would make a collection of free art available to free game authors."

...and from your previous message (still quoted above):
"[T]o think we'll ever have a system where you can discover and understand what Fedora packages do without looking at upstream web sites is IMHO illusory."

If you don't know you want a piece of music without finding it upstream, then there is no point in packaging it for Fedora. A piece of music does not need to be "compiled" for Fedora or tracked by the package manager. Once you've found it upstream, there is no benefit to going to yum to download it; just download it from upstream.

Either you passionately disagree with the above statement, or we're experiencing a massive communication breakdown.
