Banshee and F-Spot to depend on Moonlight
Planet Debian points to the news that Banshee and F-Spot is going to depend on Moonlight in the future. Moonlight is forbidden from Fedora. If this happens, Banshee and F-Spot have to be dropped from Fedora. Following the recent Microsoft announcement, I was expecting the Mono community to take steps to not depend on anything outside the ECMA subset of Mono under that promise (assuming here that that the promise is actually meaningful. Somone like SFLC should confirm this). Instead we are seeing some of the major applications developed by Novell moving to a technology that Miguel himself seems to accept is not under community friendly terms. Not a good turn of events.
