I thought that was the whole reason a new covenant has been issued, so
that people other than Novell could distribute it. Looking over it, I
don't really see where any distinction between Novell and anyone else is
It would be useful to have some response from legal people about the
exact issues which remain. It seems to me highly unlikely that problems
are going to be resolved unless the problems are made clear; and the
movement on this issue appears to be in the right direction.
I realise a number of people don't care for Mono-related technologies,
but it would be sad to see Fedora left out in the cold for this stuff.
