I'm traveling at the moment, but when I'm back at my desk next week, I'll dig into this. In the interim, please avoid making idle speculation, especially with regard to patents.

That also makes me wonder if Fedora (*COUGH* Matt Miller *COUGH*) might be able to tell us now what the issue was with releasing a Fedora build for distribution within the Microsoft Store that runs under Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL).  There was some unstated legal issue.  Maybe that'll be resolved too?!?

I would hunt down the link for that discussion and provide it here, but I'm short on time at the moment.
