I think you make too fine a distinction between Core and Extras,
especially in this case, where the licensing issue directly impacts
the ability of a package maintainer to do the right thing when it
...
 I think the best way to look at Fedora Extras as an extention of Core
not as something distinctly different moving forward. Extras is not
and will not be a dumping ground for unmaintainable packages.

I respectfully disagree a bit here. I have no problem as package maintainer waiting for bugs to be fixed upstream, and that this waiting does not make the package "unmaintainable".


OTOH, I guess it all boils down to fedora.redhat.com's definition of "open source", as referred to in point 2 on:
http://fedora.redhat.com/about/objectives.html
If pine's license doesn't meet this definition, then I would have to concede that pine has no place in in Fedora.
