Hi Kevin.  Thanks for your reply.  I'm honestly not 100% sure about either of
these questions.  Looking at the developer's page for this program,
http://www.netdirect.ca/software/packages/barry/, it's under the GPLv2.  This
leads me to believe there's no closed-source stuff in the package.

As for infringing on US software patents, I'm not sure.  Since I'm not 100%
sure about either of these, how can I find out for sure?  If it is the case
that it can be included in Fedora, what's the process to do that.  Do you have
a link you could give me?
