What do you mean by "All software"?

In my point of view, if the EULA agreement remains the same we have
today, and the only change is the text shown during first
setup-environment, when you say "All software" you mean all software
provided by yocto/oe-core/open-embedded/poky/external layer/ and not
all software from freescale.

Even if we think about all software provided by Freescale, there are
still packages under GPLv2 licensing with no need of EULA agreement.

I really prefer to have one EULA(=license) for each package. And I
really prefer to drop the need of the agreement at the

It would be perfect if we could use the commercially licensing
mechanism we already have with yocto

So one must only accept the licenses (EULAs) they are really going to
use in end-product.

I think changing the text and reverting the patch is still not enough.
It does not fix the problem pointed/highlighted by Stefan and does not
include a multi-EULA mechanism.
