That is an interesting interpretation. So then it depends on the intent of the distribution whether or not full installation information has to be provided? So as long as you redistribute Fedora and don't have ties to any hardware company you can use fedora as is, but otherwise you cannot?
Or is the backdoor simply to split the conveying in two transactions, one for the software and one for the hardware?
Isn't that a giant bug/loophole in GPLv3 then? Time for a patch :)
