Is Archlinux reconsidering license issues with the binary packages
residing at its repos?
It certainly seems so...


I really think this is a change for the better.

I have been meaning to ask, AFAIK besides the codecs package the same
license have ttf-ms-fonts. Is there any change to see them in
unsupported too?
IMO the fonts are a more complex issue than the codecs one, since most
users have them installed. Theres already an AUR entry for them in

Personally i dont know if they can be replaced by other sets of fonts
but taking advantage of the opportunity i thought id bring this to the
devs attention.
