+ - Fedora To Have A "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" For Contributors-> 1

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The Fedora Project is now going to enforce a "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy for contributors. What the project's engineering committee is asking their members to conceal is a contributor's nationality, country of origin, or area of residence. There's growing concern about software development contributions coming from export restricted countries by the US (Cuba, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, and Syria) with Red Hat being based out of North Carolina, but should these governmental restrictions apply to an open-source software project?"

Fedora To Have A "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" For Contributors

  • NSA may have planted holes in OpenSSL, GnuTLS and other important places. But NSA, at least, is an agency of a reasonably free country.

    Contributions originating from North Korea should be viewed with much more suspicion. Not rejected, necessarily, but singled-out for extra scrutiny.
