We discussed a number of options at the board meeting. We decided not
to do a black out on one specific day because the Fedora project is a
global project and not US specific. There are a lot of countries with
many Fedora contributors that have a lot worse than the SOPA/PIPA
legislation every day, there is also a number of countries that have
similar legislation going through process as well. It was for those
reasons it was decided to put a non country/legislation specific
message that ran from the 18th until the end of the month to express
the projects concerns with this style of legislations in particular
rather than being specific.
