Then do you find it OK to package up a bunch of packages that provide
nothing but gnome or KDE menu entries that launch porn internet sites?
What about packages that add bookmarks for these in Firefox
(disregarding the fact that Firefox can only have one bookmarks package
at this point)?  Technically it's "free software", could be packaged
within the guidelines, and wouldn't be illegal on the surface, but is
this really acceptable things to distribute under the Fedora brand?


and I think the distinction being made is that the bookmarks and menu items are content-only, not software.
