jonas.smedegaard added a project to T102: kopete - optionally needs nonfree Skype service: Freedom-harm: downloads nonfree code.

Correction: This _is_ a freedom issue, not because it (optionally) uses nonfree (or rather closed-protocol) service but because (optionall, when configuring to use that protocol) it downloads nonfree software.

Well....

Version check failed:
Your upload included the source package librem5-devkit-tools, version 0.0.2,
however landing already has version 0.0.2.
Uploads to landing must have a higher version than present in landing.

Looks like this version is already in (I see it in all suites):

@guido You're absolutely right, sorry - I was confusing the .dsc and .changes files somehow (the former already has all the necessary information).
Apparently the architecture in your previous changes file was not (only) set to source, and therefore a non-source upload was suumed, which does required the Binary field.
Anyway, to make some progress on this, can you please attempt another upload? I am curious at what dak has to say to that, and if it gets rejected again, I can debug the issue further looking directly into dak to determine why it things the package is unsuitable.

Gnutella added a comment to T763: Improve visuals and wording in the installer.

If it's just changes like a different slideshow, icon, colors and logo image then yes, that's possible ...

@mak Good to know, thanks. I've been experimenting with a number of concepts and as soon as I'll have something noteworthy, I'll let you know about it.

... the GNOME flavor is currently the focus of development, ...

I'm aware of that but it makes perfect sense for Plasma to be treated in an equal manner. It is just as much in demand as GNOME.

You can also style ...

I can come up with concepts and I can make graphics but CSS/QSS is probably not my thing at the moment, but one never knows. I just want the installer to look a little better, that's all. An installer is exactly that. It doesn't need to be a wiki or have many slides IMHO, but it must convey a short and to-the-point message:

A user friendly, secure and freedom respecting GNU/Linux OS for your daily usage.
With PureOS, you are the only one in control of your digital life.
FSF-endorsed

That's all it needs to say. But that's just my opinion. This OS is not only targeting people who are already GNU/Linux users but also, if not predominantly, people who are fleeing from Windows and Mac and who don't necessarily know or particularly care about what

I agree that it seems the study gets installed onto the local machine - but not run: the fix was not applied.
My concern was if backdoor could be abused (i.e. I focused on the "and" in your original title).
You got a point that even if not succesfully executed there is a concern that Mozilla can push data onto the local machine at all.
Issue title adapted accordingly.

@Gnutella If it's just changes like a different slideshow, icon, colors and logo image then yes, that's possible - I already did that once.
That said, the GNOME flavor is currently the focus of development, the Plasma flavor is less well maintained (so focusing on GNOME as long as it doesn't completely break the Plasma installations would also be fair).

So if this is going to be PureOS specific then we need to discuss this with @francois because he'll have PureOS related material that I imagine we'll want to use. If it is not meant to be PureOS specific, just a generic installer, then I don't really have an opinion beyond respecting existing copyrights and trademarks. I do hope to limit any customizations to images and slides that clarify what is happening for the user. I think it should be abundantly clear that the user is installing PureOS if that is in fact what is happening.

Wayne added a comment to T711: Software & Updates fails to start ("aptsources.distro.NoDistroTemplateException: Error: could not find a distribution template for PureOS/green").

Thanks. Those two packages just became available and it works now.

mak closed T764: Investigate why is debian-archive-keyring in green as Resolved.

I wondered about that as well, turns out the package priority changed from optional to important.
I adjusted the override now, so the package can be removed again and should no longer be present in default installations.

This is now a new issue, caused by a change in lsb-release which was switched to exclusively read /etc/os-release and started to capitalize the distribution-ID, which works for Debian, but not for PureOS.
I submitted a patch upstream: https://salsa.debian.org/debian/lsb/merge_requests/1
