PackagesAnyFreedom IssueVery LowLow[libsmf]: referring to "BSD-licensed" in descriptionUnconfirmed
0%
Task Description

Description:

The description of the package need to be changed to accommodate:
https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/words-to-avoid.html

The expression “BSD-style license” leads to confusion because it lumps together licenses that have important differences. For instance, the original BSD license with the advertising clause is incompatible with the GNU General Public License, but the revised BSD license is compatible with the GPL.

To avoid confusion, it is best to name the specific license in question and avoid the vague term “BSD-style.”

community/libsmf 1.3-5
    A BSD-licensed C library for handling SMF ("*.mid") files.

Task Description
extra/gfbgraph 0.2.3+10+gbc03c1f-1

In my opinion this software is for exclusive use of proprietary network. This software shall be removed from Hyperbola.

Task Description

Description:

In my opinion, this software shall be either removed, or features disabled to access either Google or Facebook, as those are proprietary networks.

Further, using those proprietary networks is steering users towards non-free software, directly, or indirectly, as many times Javascript need to be handled that is proprietary.

extra/kaccounts-integration 17.04.0-1 (kde-applications kdenetwork)
    Small system to administer web accounts for the sites and services across the KDE desktop, including: Google, Facebook, Owncloud, IMAP, Jabber and others

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

A free system distribution must not steer users towards obtaining any nonfree information for practical use, or encourage them to do so.

Task Description
extra/kaccounts-providers 17.04.0-1 (kde-applications kdenetwork)
    Small system to administer web accounts for the sites and services across the KDE desktop, including: Google, Facebook, Owncloud, IMAP, Jabber and others

I do not see why would “Google” and “Facebook” be there on the first place. This software shall be either removed, or features to access proprietary networks disabled.

Another point is that often such access would required handling the proprietary javascript. I do not know if that is the case here.

Task Description

Description:

extra/webkit2gtk 2.16.1-3.hyperbola1 [installed]
    GTK+ Web content engine library, without geoclue2 support

The description is vague as it is using “content” in description. Why not say “elements” or something more descriptive.

Task Description

Description:

extra/webkitgtk 2.4.11-6.hyperbola1
    Legacy Web content engine for GTK+ 3, without geoclue2 support

The description is vague. There is not even need to use “content” here. Web engine should be very clear. “Content” alone does not make sense.

PackagesAnyFreedom IssueVery LowLow[drupal]: using "content" in descriptionUnconfirmed
0%
Task Description

Description:

community/drupal 8.3.2-1
    A PHP-based content management platform

The description is vague. Content is not HTML page alone. Then even text editor could be called “content management”.

See:
https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/words-to-avoid.html#Content

In most cases, that term really refers to a system for updating pages on a web site. For that, we recommend the term “web site revision system” (WRS).

0%
Task Description

Description:

community/avrdude 1:6.3-2
    Download/upload/manipulate the ROM and EEPROM contents of AVR microcontrollers

Description is vague because of the word “content”. The word itself is fine in English language, but here it is used out of the proper context. And it is not not necessary at all. When one knows what is the abbreviation of ROM, such as Read-Only Memory, then any mentioning of contents of ROM is needless. It is enough to say: “Download/upload/manipulate the ROM and EEPROM of AVR microcontrollers”

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
