Fedora Legal Resources
This documentation covers various Fedora policies, guidelines and other information pertaining to licensing and other legal issues.
Fedora has a legal mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org). Only list subscribers can post directly to the list. You can subscribe to the list and view the archives at https://lists.fedoraproject.org/admin/lists/legal.lists.fedoraproject.org/.
|If you have a question about whether a specific license is allowed for Fedora, it is usually preferable to submit an issue at the Fedora License Data project rather than ask about it on the legal list.|
|If you have a legal question relating to a specific Fedora package, it is usually preferable to raise the question in a Bugzilla ticket rather than ask about it on the legal list.|
There is a Bugzilla tracker bug named FE-Legal. If a package review ticket is blocked by the FE-Legal tracker bug, this means that the person who set the block believes that the package raises an issue under Fedora’s licensing guidelines or other aspects of the Fedora Project’s legal policies.
Package reviews blocked by the FE-Legal tracker bug cannot be approved until the block is officially lifted.
