Of cause Fedora also takes it share about this:

 It's the politics behind Fedora which prevent "legal and free for
non-commercial use" packages to be adopted by Fedora and which forces
packagers to resort to 3rd parties. May-be it would be more helpful for
FE (FESCO) to re-consider their attitude on "non-free repos" in FE.
