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

We shall avoid vague terminology such as “Linux” as operating system, please see here:

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.

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:

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.

Iosevka wins a poll about most beautiful fonts on reddit (/r/linux). This font is very similar than Droid Sans (Official Google Font) with many advantages:

1 - Has 5 types modes (lightest, light, normal, bold, super bold)
2 - Condensed and big sizes (perfect for visual impairments users)
3 - Very Legible on i3-wm, Sway, Conky bar
