Maybe I'll even add it to the FAQ of the project wiki...
But btw.: Has anyone even talked to the fedora team? Or is this a hypothetical discussion? If so it is oddly fedora specific IMHO?

I'll bet you dollars to doughnuts members of Fedora's Technical leadership will read the discussion here and will be aware of the content argument. But ultimately it comes down to someone taking the responsibility to maintain the Simon package and start the package submission review process. A summary of the situation in faq or readme will help prevent an unnecessary delay once someone does step forward.
I would also think a Debian packaging effort would also benefit from a summary of this discussion...if they aren't ready working on packages. I think they'll have similar concerns but I'm less informed about the details of Debian policy with regard to "content" versus "code" than I am about Fedora's policy.
