The Fedora Engineering Steering Committee would like to remind maintainers

Note that any license change to a more restrictive license or license

FESCo reserves the right to block upgrades of packages to versions with
new licenses to ensure the legal distribution of Fedora.
Please contact FESCo if you have any questions.
