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

The problem tracked in this issue is that you can install non-free packages or add non-free repos - including skype and others.
Which packages can most easily be installed due to the default configuration of the tool is a subset of this general issue.

The problem is not that you can install non-free packages or add non-free repos. So can you in apt. The problem is that snap is using Snapcraft repository by default. Just try snap find skype, snap find clion or snap find spotify.

jonas.smedegaard added a comment to T59: [FREEDOM ISSUE] geogebra.

Please note that this issue is about whether or not a package in PureOS is violating policies defined by Debian and/or FSF.

LInux-Fan added a comment to T59: [FREEDOM ISSUE] geogebra.

I wanted to add to this issue that Geogebra is no longer updated in Debian due to the license, cf. https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=692728. The problem is not only the documentation is licensed for non-commercial, but also the language files. As a result, it seems impossible to me to have a package with the free parts only, because such a version would not include any strings and hence be unusable?

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).

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).
