Feature #310106, revision 3
Title: Separate disk images for countries where no SW patents (with
proprietary codecs)

openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
Priority
Requester: Mandatory

Requested by: Alex Savin (alexqwesa)

Description:
Opensuse disk images distributed in countries where disallowed software
patents must include a complete set of codecs (including proprietary),
profit:
codecs is important part of system and most peoples use it anyway, bye
or install from packman repo, but why peoples in countries where
disallowed software patents should care about it?
1) newbies is very unhappy due this
2) it made liveCDs worse 
 
How it can work:
1) If a request to http://software.opensuse.org comes from a country
where disallowed software patents, it should display the modified page
contains two links to the disk images - the main image with codecs, and
somewhere near the original image
2) I think there are no unsolvable problems for distribute, for
example: susestudio.com allows you to build and distribute images
containing patented codecs

+ I'd like to see http://opensuse-community.org/SubpixelHinting also on
+ these images
