Every culture - or even individual's - moral compass varies from others,
even slightly. Trying to define morality for a large non-homogenous
group is almost certainly going to upset a significant proportion of
that group that don't agree with the definition, often with undesirable
results - "it'll all end in tears" would be an appropriate English
idiom; IOW doomed - just ask my (Australian) Communications
Minister :-).

If you're going to maintain a spin for a like-minded community (like
ojuba.org is) then the onus is on those maintainers to decide on and
cull those packages that they deem inappropriate from their compose.
For Fedora to do so would be outside our collective bailiwick (IMHO)
and as Kevin correctly notes no single list would please everyone all
of the time - I know some folks who may object to gnome-sword for
