Task Description

«Unlike most chess engines, Stockfish is open source (GPL license). That means you can read the code, modify it, contribute back, and even use it in your own projects.» I do not know if it is libre. If it is, together with Scid, Hyperbola is one step closer for every chess lover out there who also loves freedom!

PackagesAnyUpdate RequestMediumHighMake Knock patch for Linux-libre 4.14 LTSUnconfirmed
0%
Task Description

The Knock patches for linux-libre maintained by you at https://git.hyperbola.info:50100/kernels/knock.git/ have support up to linux-libre 4.13 only (and I think it didn’t work for it when I tried it, compilation failed) but from all of those supported versions, the newest maintained generation by the upstream is 4.9.x

However, since newer kernel generations might require reprogramming the patch, I want to request it only for the latest LTS generation which is 4.14. As you know, LTS software are supported for a long time, so it’s worth to make it for linux-libre 4.14.x

This might not be really important for Hyperbola in the short term, but you are the maintainers of the TCP Stealth implementation for Linux-libre and I and maybe other people would like to use it in their projects for newer versions.

Plus, it would be great since while 4.9 kernels can use the GRSec+Knock combination like linux-libre-lts-unofficial-grsec-knock, with support for 4.14 anyone would be able to use a combination of newer patches such as Linux-hardened+Knock (Linux-hardened supports 4.14 and 4.15 as of now) which is what I’d like to do.

Steps to reproduce:

After attempt to open the DWF/DXF file FreeCad is to request the Teigha File Converter which is proprietary software.

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.

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.”

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.
