Re: to autodownload or not to autodownload

That was a rhetorical question.  Fedora has codecbuddy that points to a
proprietary MP3 plugin.  Picking on Flash (where a company is providing
a Fedora-compatible repo for their software) seems wrong when Fedora
includes software that points at other proprietary software.  Fedora
can't provide fully-functional Flash, so why can Flash not be like MP3
and have Fedora point at the Adobe repo?

There is a open source version of Flash that we can legally include (atleast partially) in Fedora and would like to support. That isn't the case for MP3. This is why codeina has a large introductory message educating end users. Refer
