Chapter III does allow modified versions to be distributed if they

It don't smell like a free nor open-source software license to me. :)
Yeah, thats a really crappy provision. Software we can't patch is
difficult to maintain.
The documentation requirements in III.1.b are overbearing and III.1.d
are practically impossible for us to meet as worded.
Of course, we don't have to comply by anything in III.1, because Fedora
is an "operating system vendor", I suppose, but this license spins in
loops on itself. I'm betting it comes back as non-free, but I'll send it
along for formal judgement.
