#889 license for downloads from getfedora.org is underspecified
Closed: moved 6 months ago by jflory7. Opened 3 years ago by zbyszek.

The licenses for ISOs and other stuff that Fedora Project produces is not specified on the download website. It should be prominently visible. I think there should be a short sentence like

Fedora is always free for anyone to use, modify, and distribute. It is a compilation of software packages, each under its own license. Images that can be downloaded here are available under the combination of licenses of the constituent software packages and the license of the Fedora project itself. See [https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Legal:Licenses/LicenseAgreement#License].

https://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ is a good example of how this could be done. It has three panes, and the third one is "terms & conditons" and includes an obvious link to a license.

Hello I would like to work on the issue

It appears something along those lines was added to the getfedora.org page, but there is no link or context to licensing. Or at least that I saw:

Screenshot of a reuse notice added to the bottom of getfedora.org.

That said, I opened fedora-web/websites#215 to follow up on this. Closing this issue as moved.
