you think websites are free and opensource in general?
they are not, just because it's plaintext doesn't make the code free

i don't get who's business it is to care about what a software running 
on a users machine does *after confirmation of the user* that he wants 
his machine exactly to do that and as far fedora don't host the download 
it's not Fedoras business at all

in other words: Fedora has much bigger problems than this discussion 
like systemd-presets and "dhcp-compat replaces dhcp" while upgrade from 
F21 to F22 *disables* dhcpd on any machine even when the unit was copied 
and modified to /etc/systemd/system and the same likely would happen 
with services disabled by intention if they are default on
