Description

Code has practical use only with nonfree service.

FSF guidelines for systems forbids to "steer users towards obtaining any nonfree information for practical use, or encourage them to do so."
That sentence is however part of a paragraph talking only about locally installed/installable software, and therefore is assumed to not cover e.g. ways to access external services which are not freely licensed.

jonas.smedegaard closed T376: gnome-initial-setup - includes plugin needing privacy-leaking service Pocket as Resolved.

whoops, sorry: wrong package!

jonas.smedegaard reopened T376: gnome-initial-setup - includes plugin needing privacy-leaking service Pocket as "Open".

Unfortunately, Pocket is again included: Seems Firefox changed between 60 an 68 to embed Pocket in the core instead of providing it as a hidden system.

jonas.smedegaard added a parent task for T102: kopete - optionally needs nonfree Skype service: T367: PureOS is not fully in sync with Debian.

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.

jeremiah.foster added a comment to T110: PureBrowser - promotes nonfree search engines.

So this issue seems to boil down to a wishlist item "bring in yacy to PureOS". PureBrowser has no leverage over what public search engines serve with regard to proprietary or non-proprietary javascript.

This is not (by our definition) a freedom issue: It does not involve installing non-free software locally.

I recommend https://www.findx.com/ and https://gigablast.com/, they are 100% free software.

While according to Mozilla the source code will be published, and according to news websites the code was in fact published on https://github.com/Pocket, I can't find the backend code anywhere at all.
So the service indeed is non-free at the moment.
