Internal to Fedora/RH or a complete fork?


Preferably a cross distribution coordinated fork like Xorg.

A little background on what happened.

Jonathan Corbet of LWN pointed out a license incompatibility

I forwarded this mail to Fedora Advisory Board list since the Red Hat counsel is in that list

LWN article (subscribers only for another week) explaining the details at http://lwn.net/Articles/195167/

Tom Callaway is doing a licensing audit initiated by a previous Fedora board discussion (https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-advisory-board/2006-August/msg00227.html) of non-free and software with licensing issues in Fedora and filed a bug report against cdrtools pointing out this issue

https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=202526

There are few potential forks here such as

For FC6, the idea is to go back to the last known good source and stick with it till we figure out the plans better.
