I'm not so certain of your assertion that this belongs in fedora is true. The script that Hans de Goede wrote to do roughly the same thing for game content is pretty controversial and that has the benefit of downloading closed content for an open source engine. Having something that does the same for GoogleEarth which is a closed source engine working with closed data could very well cross the line.On 07/02/2008, Douglas McClendon <dmc fedora filteredperception org> wrote:Christopher Brown wrote:On 07/02/2008, Douglas McClendon <dmc fedora filteredperception org> wrote:I've been meaning to do this myself for a long time, but I've just got a lot of other higher priorities. I don't suppose I could implore someoneelse into doing the work for me? Shouldn't be real hard. Wouldn't it be cool to be able to append a teeny little kickstart postscript, and then end up with a livecd or system that has GE installed for all users? http://packages.debian.org/etch/googleearth-packageIt doesn't have an open source license so can't be included in Fedora of course. Which makes it OT for this list IMO.I suspect this is a point you understand, but for the sake of clarity I'll highlight- The "googleearth-package" package/.deb/[theoretical .rpm], absolutely DOES have an open source license. What the _tool_ that it _provides_, does, is to generate anon-open-source rpm from a simple commandline invocation and network access.Please, it's fine if you don't want to be the one to do this, but from a legal and open-source perspective, I think that googleearth-package*.[s]rpm belongs in fedora just as much as the current .deb belongs in debian.
Well I don't know why you couldn't, but I think what livna is doing in this area is a superior solution anyway.
