I would prefer we did not include this in Fedora, mainly because
script potentially downloads a LOT of third-party stuff from a number of
different sources. Checking each item to ensure that the act of
providing a tool to directly and clearly download that item is not
causing legal concerns (specifically, contributory infringement) will
take a long time.
If you still want this in Fedora, I'd ask you to have FESCo consider it
with my concerns noted. If they think that the merits of this script
outweigh the time to do a full legal audit, then I will tackle it.
You can open a new FESCo ticket here:
Resurecting this old thread, because this SW was packaged in Copr now.
And Leigh raised Legal Issue on this Copr.
So I have question:
* why providing a tool is/can be infringement. In past Fesco claimed that a tool itself
is fine (e.g. hydra)
And in fact we have very similar tool in Fedora already:
* If this is not enough for Fedora, is it good for Copr? Or not?
