to be clear, the "RPM Fusion method" is acceptable because fedora does
not officially endorse or even recommend it - it's softwre is accessed
only by the user explicitly adding the foreign URL to their mirror list;
which could be any standard RPM repo hosted by anyone, just as ubuntu
"PPA"s can be easily used in trisquel or debian non-free repos can be
easily used in pureos and gnewsense, if the user choses to do so - it is
not the aim of the FSDG to prevent users from installing their choice of
software; only that FSDG distros should not recommend or assist in using
non-free software
