It is curious how you can continue to be so belligerent about
something that has been so clearly explained to you so many times by
so many people.

What is so difficult about the idea that RPMFusion modifies Fedora,
and not vice-versa? They provided packages and instructions for
installing proprietary software on your Fedora system. It is their
responsibility to explain how to uninstall that software. Simple.

Fedora, for its part, doesn't advocate using proprietary software at all.

What you're asking is equivalent to demanding that Microsoft provide
instructions for how to switch from Firefox back to Internet Explorer.
It just doesn't make any sense.
