Yow for the second time of being jumped on can I ask what bit of which
license is violated by Fedora just shipping the GPL2 version as it
always has -- end of Fedora's story?

To be clear I don't have any boxes any more that use CIFS/Samba, I won't
care if Samba is completely pulled, although I see other people do care.
