The only difference in both repositories is the license of the software.
The package guidelines are exactly the same as Fedora's (with the exception
of kernel modules) in both repos.

The standard for inclusion in rpmfusion is not being elegible to be in
Fedora. Again, the reasons are purelly legal (with the exception of kernel
modules). Again, there is no difference in the guidelines (bundled
libraries must be unblundled, etc)
