Re: [GuidelinesChange] Binary Firmware addition

You might want add "...in perpetuity" into the agreement.

    "Redistributable in perpetuity, no modification permitted"

Unless barred by local/regional law(s), this will insure that the agreement is "in perpetuity"; therefore, remain binding and enforceable even after the owner change hand either through merger and/or acquisition.

The key is obtaining a perpetual license agreement.

The following additional text was added to the Packaging/Guidelines
Binary Firmware section:

The License tag for any firmware that disallows modification should be
set to:
"Redistributable, no modification permitted"

Firmware packages should be named <foo>-firmware, where <foo> is the driver or other hardware component that the firmware is for.

This change was approved by the Fedora Packaging Committee and ratified by FESCO.
