can we use rpmfusion non-free as a plugin?
As Dridi mentioned, this is based on IntelliJ IDEA (or however it's

We have enough packaged and unmaintained software in Java world as it is...
As for rpmfusion: rpmfusion has *identical* guidelines to Fedora. Only
difference is that they let in patented stuff (more or less). You can't package
something with unclear licensing or redistribution problems in rpmfusion either.
Thank you very much.
