While we're at it: Does Fedora have a rule on a license language?
Or conversely: Which languages does Fedora accept as valid wrt.

As RH is located in the USA, I'd presume Fedora to be subject to "US
courts" in case of "legal matters" and as such I'd presume US laws would
prescribe "English" (and may-be Spanish - I don't know)?

Background: We have precedences of "Japanese-only licenses" in Fedora
