Euros is not enough.

Fedora isn't a "if its free stick it in" repository.  It isn't the old sunsite.

Fedora is for linux (and I guess windows now) software and data that software
can use. There isn't anything that can use OVM so why bundle it into fedora? Before you reply with 90 pages of prose, please have someone edit it down to a
readable subset.
Scenario:

Data:
I have a Fedora server. The OVM package could be installed on this server if it was available in the repositories. I have several dozens boxes running RHEL which run commercial EDA software and could use the OVM content shared by the Fedora server.
You have no license to use the EDA software I have.

Conclusion: because you do not have access to free tools and neither the 15 K USD/month needed for the license, I may not install OVM from the Fedora repos.



Chitlesh and I are the only ones who see a flaw in the reasoning above ?
