sean.obrien raised the priority of T270: PureOS tolerates execution of nonfree Javascript in Mozilla applications from "Normal" to "Freedom Issue".

What's the status on this? The issue of LibreJS is coming up again in general, and I will also be requesting some other addons are either default or opt-in (perhaps with a slide in the first-boot setup wizard for PureOS).

d3vid added a comment to T420: [FREEDOM ISSUE] snapd - linked to external source.

It is a package manager. You can use it to install a .snap file (snap package) that you have downloaded by some other means, or that you have built yourself locally:

Either povray 1:3.7.0.4-2pureos1 went through NEW when I uploaded it on November 27 - three days _before_ your changes, or in went through NEW caused by your interventions.

mak added a comment to T252: please drop forked povray package: Freedom issue fixed in Debian since 1:3.7.0.4-1.

The package went through NEW after I synchronized it with Debian, which leads to this situation now:
INFO: Can not sync povray: Target version '1:3.7.0.4-2pureos1' is newer/equal than source version '1:3.7.0.4-2'.
So, we can only properly sync this with Debian when the Debian version is newer (the archive will not allow downgrades).
