Hi Paul,

I don't understand the "indemnification" bit.  But, IANAL.  :-)

If "EE" becomes a collection of stuff supplied on a "volunteer" and
"optional add-on basis" (much the same as FE is currently provided)
then why would I or any other volunteer need indemnification?  I
mean, folks purchase RHEL (and all the related support services,
etc.)  and "EE" is (or perhaps could be) just a collection of
separate volunteer-provided add-ons [that just happen to have been
through a community review process and are, as a result, likley to
be of good qulaity].

Or am I mis-understanding what "EE" is liklely to become?
