[in the news] New Legal Guideline

IMHO it is a risky decision. By limiting the field of use that governs what
constitutes "acceptable" behaviour of Fedora, we effectively add regulations
based on a vague feeling of "this could be somehow something that might put
Fedora at risk".
I expect a full and thorough analysis of which tools we currently ship could
be excluded under this new doctrine. Think of nmap, wireshark etc. Tools
that have a perfect use for debugging but can also be used for not-so-good
With this decision, it will become hard to justify why some tools are OK and
others pose a legal risk.
I am not happy with this new policy.
