Information on add-on repositories.

Comment 2 Karsten Wade 2005-04-06 21:06:55 UTC
This is probably not possible as written.  If the repositories contain packages
that have questionable or problematic legal concerns, Fedora cannot be
associated with them.

In the docs project the method we hit upon was to suggest search terms to use on
a favorite search engine.  Again, specific package names should not be mentioned.

I have to look around more and see how this is being handled.  I do have a
fairly clear idea of how Red Hat's legal team wanted it handled, at least in
terms of direct mentions in documentation about where to get e.g. mp3 plug-ins
for XMMS.

This has been hanging around long enough - probably obsoleted by the WiKi.
