>From our good buddy Miguel over the Novell way:

Finally we can put an end to all this retarded Boycott Novell anti-mono FUD,
however to comply properly we on the Fedora side may need to split out the
WinForms, ADO.NET and ASP.NET, then ship those in rpmfusion instead as they
are not covered by ECMA and thus not by the the community promise.

Good news, and thank you to Novell and Microsoft for working this out,
erasing doubt and showing good faith. I am very happy today.
