I have asked on the advisory-board list about getting an official Fedora 
position on OpenH264 before the vote occurs. I don't want to be making 
claims about Fedora on my own on how far Fedora will or won't go in 
supporting OpenH264. (This could in theory affect our ability to use the 
Firefox trademark if we block its ability to download that codec from Cisco. 
Assuming that the download is implemented in Firefox.)
