It's difficult to fix things if we don't know what's broken.
The most obvious issue is that it does not cover Distributors besides
Novell.

I thought that was the whole reason a new covenant has been issued, so that people other than Novell could distribute it. Looking over it, I don't really see where any distinction between Novell and anyone else is made.

It would be useful to have some response from legal people about the exact issues which remain. It seems to me highly unlikely that problems are going to be resolved unless the problems are made clear; and the movement on this issue appears to be in the right direction.

I realise a number of people don't care for Mono-related technologies, but it would be sad to see Fedora left out in the cold for this stuff.

Cheers

Alex.
