It's entirely relevant.  It's not as easy to install non-free software
in Fedora.  That is a simple fact due to the core principals by which
Fedora exists.

If that causes you problems, please talk to the folks at RPMfusion and
offer to help.  It might also mean talking to folks in Fedora about
how to resolve some difficult issues.  It might end up with you coming
full circle and seeing that "it's not as easy to install non-free
software in Fedora."  Any of those outcomes is far more productive
than harping on about it for days or weeks on this list.

Why this thread continues is rather baffling to me.
