Which is not what he is saying. It is sad that such things happen at
all, but he claims they happen routinely, as a matter of fact. That is

Btw, proven packagers are approved by FESCo. I fail to see how any Red

Btw, these things are hardly limited to Red Hat. E.g., who is to stop
two packagers trying to get a set of packages into Fedora from
perfunctorily reviewing each others packages?

This announcement was made after 1.9.17 so the new license should come
into effect in 1.9.18.

Currently it has:
And I believe I should change it to
License: GPLv2 with exceptions
