Although there is non-Free Software included in Fedora, AFAIK the most
serious issue is a matter of policy ("non-Free Software is
acceptable"; "shipping these non-Free bits are not bugs that need
fixing right away") rather than the actual presence of non-Free
Software.  If the right policies were in place, given enough manpower,
all non-Free Software would be eventually shoved out of Fedora.  With
the current policies, more and more non-Free Software is being
welcomed into Fedora.
