In addition, several games ship redistributable, but non-modifiable data (same rules as for firmware). The autodownloader stuff is data which doesn't even comply with the relaxed guidelines for firmware and game data (e.g. because it is not redistributable at all or only non-commercially). If you think this situation is not acceptable, you can bring it up at FESCo or even the Fedora Board.I think that is unacceptable and goes against what was originally agreed upon for the use of autodownloader.
AFAICS this is what was agreed upon during the sometimes hotly debated threads about autodownloader. However, it might not be what all the participants realized was being agreed to. I strongly suggest that Hans be available to talk about it if this is going to be discussed by FESCo as it would be unfair to give him the impression that this would be acceptable, let him do the work to implement it, and then ban it without letting him present what he thought the requirements were and from whom he received that impression.
