Available Packages


List of applications we will NOT package

  • Non-commercial clauses in applications licenses render them invalid for inclusion into Fedora Package Collection. Such apps are not Free and open source software and violates Clause 6 of the OSI definition. See an example of such clause:
This software may be copied and distributed for educational, research, and not
for profit purposes provided that this copyright and statement are included in
all such copies.  Other copyrights may also apply.
Name Description Why it won't be packaged
VMD Molecular Visualization and Analysis Package Non-Free license
fasta2 and fasta3 The FASTA programs find regions of local or global (new) similarity between Protein or DNA sequences License contains non-commercial clause
foo bar app patented
