It seems so. What will be the next step? Fedora bookmarks for Firefox,
which point at the same web sites that gnaughty uses and advertises?
More tools like that? A competing tool for a competitor's adult web site?
A comps group for such software packages?

"Known"? Known by whom? It can't be spelled out like in the README?
All what the tool seems to do is to serve as an advertisement. It is
trying to lure people into visiting those web sites with a normal
web browser, isn't it?

We shouldn't provide gnaughty with a hardcoded download site and hardcoded
search terms. It is not a versatile downloader like wget/curl, however,
that can be pointed at arbitrary URLs. It is limited to downloading from
that one directory that it tries to advertise.

And we should remove bad language from gestikk and convince gestikk
upstream to remove it, too.

Why not? It's not much different from spending time on legal issues, such
as verifying the licensing terms applied in source files, removing source
code or content we don't want to ship, or making sure we don't include a
Yum repo definition package for RPM Fusion. Can you tell whether the tool
_by default_ (!) offers illegal content?

Doesn't fix the image trouble. Doesn't answer whether the Fedora Project
wants to be responsible for offering and redistributing this software and
thereby preselecting the hardcoded adult web sites.

You want to move the adult-check from web sites (which don't belong to the
Fedora Project) into the Fedora Installer or into RPM?
