Yep. I should have been more explicit there i guess
Nothing in fedora infrastructure is proprietary. And nothing that
user gets when interacting with our websites is proprietary. But github is
certainly proprietary and we are hosting some of our code there (just like
many other open source projects). If that seems like something that we
wouldn't have done previously then you could see it as a change in policy.
I would say so since this appears to be the first time that Fedora
infrastructure developed app is hosted in github.
However, we've never attempted to check if our developers are
coding in a
proprietary ide or using a non-free os to connect to infrastructure. We've
never frowned on people hosting their own code that we use in fedora on
sourceforge, github, or other propriety hosting.
As a side note, sourceforge is no longer using proprietary code.
I have been looking to
package that for Fedora as well. In any case, if this was a deliberate
decision to use github, thats fine. A mirror in gitorious might be
recommended by policy. Just a suggestion.
