Description

Package: purism-librem-coreboot-updater
Tag: [uses-nonfree]
'References: https://www.gnu.org/software/libreboot/
Short description: PureOS default repositories have possible non-free functional data.
Proposed solution: patch
Notes: PureOS 8.0 "Prometheus" Beta 1's default repository provides this package, in which the file purism-librem-coreboot-updater.sh has dependencies beyond what is documented in the first comment lines, for instance, it downloads binary files from https://dl.google.com/dl/edgedl/chromeos/recovery/chromeos_8743.85.0_tidus_recovery_stable-channel_mp-v2.bin.zip and http://kakaroto.homelinux.net/purism/coreboot_base_bios.rom.bz2 but has little indication on the complete corresponding source files of these. One possible solution is to use Libreboot instead of the non-free counterpart.
