Re: Fedora Studios Spin?

I read some time ago that there is an Art spin planned. Why don't add

of commercial alternatives that many can't legally afford.

On this list Colby expressed his interest in such a spin containing a video editor:

However, the tools are not ready yet: Kino can't open Ogg Theora, PiTiVi can't do anything useful, Cinelerra makes full use of proprietary codecs and so on.

Do not forget the potential legal troubles around such a spin: it would have to handle out of the box all the tasks using free codecs, which may not be what the users expect (you would not be legally able to master a DVD with it).
