This mail has absolutely no info regarding why a package would be acceptable for Extras when it isn't acceptable for Core. This disturbs me greatly. If the license isn't good enough for core, it shouldn't be in Extras either.


Extras is not a dumping ground for packages that aren't suitable for
Core.  If someone wants to push a package from Core -> Extras, it still
goes through a review.  Openmotif will fail that review immediately,
given that it's license is not OSI compatible.


We *already* have many packages both in Fedora Core and Fedora Extras that dont meet the guidelines. If we are going to clean it up, we can do so in a better manner than just dumping out packages.

The only reason that I am suggesting we move these packages into Fedora Extras as a *intermediate* step and as a exception to the guidelines is that community contributors are interested (https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-maintainers/2006-August/msg00078.html) in helping out and we cant do that easily by keeping them in Fedora Core. The other option is to dump out openmotif and all its dependencies now since none of them in their current state meet the guidelines.
