Non-free Extras?



-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

In order to pull in packagers like those maintaining Dries, Dag Weirs,
freshrpms, and others, and in order to assure Fedora users that their
packages would work instead of saying, "if you don't use official
packages, you're on your own," has there been any conversation on
taking an example from Debian and having a non-free repository?  It
would also free up the packagers who spend so much time duplicating
each other's packages in order to ensure compatibility.  I know there
are issues with their ffmpeg and mp3 codecs, but could these issues be
solved simply by designating their repositories as non-free?  I think
it would greatly enhance the Fedora experience, IMHO as a loyal FC
user since Yarrow.
