As (I think it was Ben who reminded us), the Fedora Council adopted
(in 2018) the following statement:

"The Fedora Project wants to advance free and open source software and
as a pragmatic matter we recognize that some infrastructure needs may
be best served by using closed source or non-free tools today.
Therefore the Council is willing to accept closed source or non-free
tools in Fedora’s infrastructure where free and open source tools are
not viable or not available."

If you don't agree with that decision, run for the council, or
vote for representatives on the council who agree with your
point of view and will work to rescind that statement.

Until that happens, the statement stands as adopted.
