Chitlesh and the fel gang could go the easy way by just making a remix with strange licences - but they work hard with the electronics industrie to convince them to change licences to have it in fel or even become contributors. It has also Ambassador Relevance - i could hire some of the most brilliant contributors through fel, they came as normal software-, computer enthusiasts and were more than happy i introduced fel to them - so i suggest put it back - this has general relevance in some parts of the world! cu Joerg -- Joerg (kital) Simon jsimon fedoraproject org http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/JoergSimon http://kitall.blogspot.com Key Fingerprint: 3691 0989 2DCA 58A2 8D1F 2CAC C823 558E 5B5B 5688
