"The tainted section accepts software under a license that is might be
free or open source and which cannot be redistributed publicly in
certain areas in the world, or due to patents issues."



"stuff we think we can redistribute, but that may have some patent

look like consistent with each other, althought the "what belongs / is
allowed here must still be discussed" indeed looks like it's not
frozen yet.
