Task Description

Develop HyperBK (Hyper Berkeley Kernel) based on OpenBSD‘s kernel LibertyBSD‘s scripts to deblob and rebrand kernel for HyperbolaBSD.

TODO:

  • Download LibertyBSD scripts to deblob and rebrand kernel from their scripts.
  • Push source to HyperBK’s project.
  • Rebrand OpenBSD kernel to HyperBK with LibertyBSD scripts.
  • Package HyperBK for HyperbolaBSD.

PATCHING NOTE

When the check concerns kernel, we obviously want to match with HyperBK.

Example of triplet check:	hyperbolabsd)
Example of uname -s check:	HyperbolaBSD)
Example of uname -r check:	1.0)
Example of C macro check:	defined(__HyperbolaBSD__)
GeneralImplementation RequestVery HighCriticalPOWER (ppc64le) portingDeferred

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:
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.

UXP applicationsImplementation RequestVery LowVery Lowa libre version of Navigator, Unconfirmed
0%
Task Description

http://repository.binaryoutcast.com/artifacts/navigator-builds/

http://binaryoutcast.com/projects/borealis/

unlike Navigator though, it needs two things: compatibility with seamonkey addons, (the ones that effect web browsing, not the mail email parts)

and to be based off of the latest version of seamonkey, only obviously just the navigator part. I understand this might be hard to implement now, so I can wait if need be, Just thought I would show this to you.

PS, if you ever make HyperBK, port it to that too, but until then, just the os that I mentioned.

Also, last thing, any seamonkey addons that I have already asked for seamonkey, again that aren’t email/mail based, implement them for this too. :)

I will put the severity at very low if that’s okay, just until you have actual time/whatever...

Let me know if this is even remotely possible with this build.
