Task Description

This package contains vague terminology “Vendor”:

community/glide 0.12.3-1
    Dependency management and vendoring for Go projects

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.

Dependency management and suppliering for Go projects

Task Description

Description:

community/ext3grep 0.10.2-4
    A tool to investigate an ext3 file system for deleted content and possibly recover it

Description is vague because of the word “content”. Why not say instead “data”?

Task Description

Description:

community/webfs 1.21-13
    Simple and instant http server for mostly static content.

Description is vague because of the word “content”. Why not simply say “files” instead and be more specific.

Even empty files without data inside can be served.

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

community/autoconf-archive 1:2017.03.21-1
    A collection of freely re-usable Autoconf macros

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

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

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).

NOTE: POWER porting is focused only for Hyperbola GNU/Linux-libre .

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.

Task Description

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!
