#889 license for downloads from getfedora.org is underspecified
Opened 2 years ago by zbyszek. Modified 2 years ago

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.
