[Fedora-legal-list] Orthanc - OpenSSL exception

Dear all,

I am the upstream developer of Orthanc, an open-source DICOM server [1]. 
Yesterday, I submitted a first version of a Fedora package for Orthanc [2].

As pointed out by Antonio Trande [3], Orthanc is licensed under the 
GPLv3 license with the OpenSSL exception [1]. This is because Orthanc 
supports SSL encryption for its Web/REST interface for securing the 
communications [4]. Unfortunately, I do not see the GPLv3 + OpenSSL 
exception in the licenses that are supported by Fedora [5].

Could someone indicate me how I can take this issue into consideration 
for the Orthanc Fedora packaging?

I thank you much in advance!
