Because, like FedoraFAQ much of what is contained in this EC site is
legally questionable[1].  The issue of FedoraFAQ has come up before on
this list (please see archives for details), and since we can't do as
complete a job due to legal encumbrance, and since some of the advice
given on the site violates both the spirit and mission of the Fedora
Project -- e.g. to build a complete OS from free software -- we decided
not to get involved officially, IIRC.  If, however, you would like to
get EC together with the FedoraFAQ maintainer, then by all means, do so!
Collaboration is almost always a good thing in these situations.

[1] Please, PLEASE, let's not start another "legal issues" thread.  :-D
If anyone has questions, I beg you in the name of all that is holy, read
the archives, and then post only if you have a new and *compelling*
argument.
