google search on start.fedoraproject.org


I wonder why google is the search engine used on the default browser start page start.fedoraproject.org.
following the news there are frequent messages about google being not so free, tracking your searches, combining your data without opt-out, stealing mail and passwords from privately owned wifi all over the world (was it a bug or must-have feature?).

IMHO this is in contrast to the Fedora philosophy of Freedom. Fedora repos do not include software with non-free licenses but links to a non free search engine company the same time...

any ideas?

second, who maintains this start page so I can address my question?

TIA, Meine
Fedora 25 -- i3, MATE
