0%
Task Description

This package contains vague terminology “Vendor”:

community/ndiswrapper-dkms 1.60.20160717-1
    Module for NDIS (Windows Network Drivers) drivers supplied by vendors.Use with DKMS

According to:
https://www.gnu.org/distros/free-system-distribution-guidelines.html

We shall avoid vague terminology such as “Vendor”, please see here:
https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/words-to-avoid.html#Vendor

It would be good example to set to have proper description of packages without using “Vendor”.

eg.

Module for NDIS (Windows Network Drivers) drivers.Use with DKMS

Task Description

Description:

community/openstreetmap-map-icons-svn 31588-1 [installed]
    A set of public domain licensed map icons for general OSM use

It is questionable if it is “Licensed” or dedicated.

See the file:
/usr/share/licenses/openstreetmap-map-icons/svg-twotone/LICENSE.txt

it does not matter if the file is named “LICENSE”, it could be also named anyhow else.

There must be reason why the organization Creative Commons is not using the word “License” in that text, and that is why I propose to simply say in description:

    A set of public domain map icons for general OSM use

Don’t use “freely available software” as a synonym for “free software.” The terms are not equivalent. Software is “freely available” if anyone can easily get a copy. “Free software” is defined in terms of the freedom of users that have a copy of it. These are answers to different questions.

Task Description

Description: Per a user request and to better secure the kernel, we can embed the cryptsetup and ciphers in the kernel. This would mean rather than exposed modules, they are built-in to the kernel and ready to use even without an intramfs.

To be embedded: ciphers aes, twofish, serpent; sha256, sha512 - and the necessary modules (don’t forget the block modes xts, lvm and cryptsetup ...)

Additionally, we could include USB Guard and any other features that meet our social contract and security outlook.

As even the support for GCC 7 is now ending with the release of version 7.5 (https://gcc.gnu.org/ml/gcc/2019-11/msg00099.html) I’d like to propose a renewal of the building-stack - which I think is also needed in time. Also a renewal of the glibc would be good at all!

I don’t know if this is the best place for this, but I get stuck on the hardening the grub guide from libreboot,

https://libreboot.org/docs/gnulinux/grub_hardening.html

I wondered if there is anything different that needs to be done to get this part done:

gpg –homedir keys –detach-sign my.initramfs
gpg –homedir keys –detach-sign my.kernel
gpg –homedir keys –detach-sign libreboot_grub.cfg

it gives me a bunch of weird errors

Hi,

My email server (riseup.net) fails to deliver emails to hyperbola.info. Here’s the error message coming in the returned email:

Reporting-MTA: dns; mx1.riseup.net
X-Postfix-Queue-ID: 49vvwD4xQnzFf2F

This problem did not occur last time I sent emails to a hyperbola.info account (December 2019).
It does not happen with any other destination email server. My guess is that something isn’t properly configured in your server.
If you conclude that this is a riseup.net problem, let me know and I’ll open a bug report with them.

The requirement for TLS 1.2 in email effectively isolated us from internet, and yelling for change isn’t working even in communications with other free/libre system distributions and mailing lists related to free/libre software (both for software and for discussions related to the movement itself). :)

It might not cover all transport failures, but at least has a chance to know in advance whether the message was delivered, discarding the events that happen afterwards (be it to the main inbox or subject to filtering rules such as moving to other folder, marking as spam or deleted after receipt).

Description:
Historically, Swiftweasel was a Firefox-based application built on XUL platform around 2007 and abandoned in 2010. It was optimized for several architectures using the following methods such as the Profile-Guided Optimization (PGO) and binary code optimization for computers with limited resources.

Since there are users encouraging us develop a Palemoon-based application , and Swiftweasel contains non-trademarked graphics and logos, we could port Swiftweasel to UXP platform as theme for Iceweasel-UXP.

Task Description

The unfortunate reality is that x86 computers come encumbered with built-in low-level backdoors like the Intel Management Engine , as well as nonfree boot firmware. This means that users can’t gain full control over their computers, even if they install a free operating system such as Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

Hyperbola is working hard to fix these issues and getting closer every day, but for the time being, this is why many current Respects Your Freedom (RYF) offerings are refurbished older devices.

For the future of free computing, we need support architectures that do not come with such malware pre-installed, and the Power9-based Talos II promises to be a great architecture example for workstations and servers environments where Hyperbola is focused since is a fully free long-term support distribution.

Devices like this are the future of computing that Respects Your Freedom and for that reason it’s a high priority for Hyperbola port all packages for the POWER architecture (power64le).
