 Fedora is a Linux-based operating system that showcases the latest in
 free and open source software. Fedora is always free for anyone to use,
 modify, and distribute. It is built by people across the globe who work
 together as a community: the Fedora Project. The Fedora Project is open
 and anyone is welcome to join.

Guess where it comes from...

Though I agree with the pragmatic choice to ship binary closed source
firmwares in fedora, this is against the stated goals of Fedora.
