[Fedora-packaging] I wish to package some CC licensed content ...

Most of my reading these days is done on my laptop[1]. This includes both tech 
(docs and tutorial types) as well as non-tech books.

So, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw 'diveintopython' listed in my yum 
search listings (I was searching for comic book readers).

I like the idea of being able to 'yum install' or 'yum search', or even 'yum 
groupinsatall' books (or any CC content for that matter, eg: music, video 
..etc). If packaging such content is encouraged, I'd gladly package most of the 
CC content I've accumulated.

Does Fedora has a policy or guideline about these things ?

[1]  I don't think the Kindle ...or any other dedicated ebook reader for that 
matter, is worth the investment right now

PS: Since I just subscribed to this list to ask the question above, I might as 
well also request someone to please review the following packages I've 
submitted, and sponsor me if possible. They've been languishing for some time now:
