Often there aren't packages for much wanted software available regarding
to license policies of distros. When users want to use a computer for
multimedia productions, the users perhaps should reconsider if it's
smart to use such distros, especially when using third party
repositories could cause issues.

However, sometimes developer should think about using licenses that
don't cause issues or not to use e.g. codecs that might cause license
