"The chorus crying about the exclusion of SQLNinja has nothing at stake,
nothing at risk if Fedora ships SQLNinja. On the other hand, Fedora as a
project under Red Hat's wing can expose the parent company to legal risk
— not to mention risk to its reputation. Imagine for a moment the
headlines about Red Hat shipping a SQL Server takeover tool in Fedora
15, especially if it actually is used to conduct an attack of any
magnitude. If you want to get on the slippery slope, Red Hat and the
Fedora Board have very good reasons for rejecting SQLNinja"
