[aur-general] Spotify paying attention to requests for redistribution permission

Hi all,

It looks like Spotify had paid some small amount of attention to the
request that they change their license to allow redistribution, or that
they give permission to redistribute to specific Linux distros, which is
the main thing blocking Spotify from being in the repos instead of on the
AUR. Today they have marked the issue as "new" and left a note saying they
are assessing its popularity by waiting for people to vote for it.

It's not clear how much of an effect it will have, but if you are
interested you can vote for the issue here:
