[fab] FSF Licensing Audit Status



Here is the latest status update on the FSF Free Software audit of
Fedora:

* Emailed FSF (licensing fsf org) to try and get formal rulings on  
  questionable licenses.
* Added cdrtools to the list of things that need to be handled.
* Filed bugs against the packages that need to go. Oh no, these  
  packages have to go, go go, bugzilla!

THE KNOWN UNKNOWNS (6):
Packages of questionable licenses that need to be blessed or damned by
the FSF:
#######################################################################
PACKAGE NAME       || RPM provided license || Notes
#######################################################################

THE KNOWNS (7):
Packages with non-free licenses that need to be taken out of Fedora Core
and moved to Fedora Extras (or trashed entirely)

#######################################################################
aspell-nl          || distributable        || Bugzilla 202511

Everything else in Fedora Core checks out with an FSF compatible
license.
