I would like to get comments on whether folks here are favorable to pointing to a third party repository from codec buddy (with appropriate warnings and disclaimers). If this is considered something we wanted to do we will consult with Red Hat legal to verify that is a legally safe choice for us. Comments?

I would want to see something in writing from Mark Webbink saying it's
legally OK for Fedora to do before we even begin discussing it.  We are
not lawyers and this exercise is pointless if legal says no.

Ha, so we have 2 camps:
1.  Let's not decide, until legal says it's ok.
2.  Let's not take it to legal, until we're sure we want to try to do this.

fwiw, the board did ask for such clarification from Mark, and from initial comments, looks like this may be something we can do. No commitment, mind you, partly because we don't have the necessary implementation details sorted out yet.
