FS#899 - [pinta] mentioning proprietary software Paint.NET


The description of the package need to be changed to accommodate:

community/pinta 1.6-2 [installed]
     Drawing/editing program modeled after Paint.NET. It's goal is to provide a simplified alternative to GIMP for casual users

I am not quite sure what the policy is in Hyperbola on this one. I am referring to the reference to the proprietary software Paint.NET. That is for me steering users to verify what is Paint.NET – we shall not be doing it. It should be removed from description.

I am fine if authors have in documentation something explaining how they started software project. But I am not fine in descriptions which are public and accessible on Internet to have such references to illegitimate proprietary software.

Just to clarify, the word “alternative” is just fine in this description and need not be removed.
