One person makes a incorrect statement and another piles up on it and no
good can come out of that.  The problem is a legal one.   Red Hat has
the legal liability over code that Fedora distributes and we rely on
lawyers from Red Hat and FSF to verify that we can distribute code under
the free and open source licenses.   It has nothing to do with ego of anyone
