mak closed T71: angband-doc - license (of packaging?) too vague for FSF as "Resolved".

I don't think re-purposing this old bug for a blacklist removal request is a good idea - I was actually a bit confused to me to see seeing the bug appear again with this title...

jonas.smedegaard lowered the priority of T71: angband-doc - license (of packaging?) too vague for FSF from "Freedom Issue" to "Low".

This is no longer a freedom-issue, just cleanup internally...

jonas.smedegaard reopened T71: angband-doc - license (of packaging?) too vague for FSF as "Open".

Please drop blocking from Debian: Package has been dropped as obsolete now: See https://bugs.debian.org/874575

mak closed T57: [FREEDOM ISSUE] chromium as "Resolved".

@zlatan.todoric LibreOffice build-depends on chromium, so this will be quite annoying.
Package is removed from PureOS now, but we will need to find a solution for LO...

@mak remove and block from re-entering the chromium package from archive as GNU-libre ML is pointing this out.

jonas.smedegaard changed the status of T49: cron - contains a file licensed too vaguely for FSF from "Resolved" to "Invalid".

Changing status to "invalid", more appropriate for the task as a whole (arguably I should've created a subtask for the package removal which is indeed "done" by now).

jonas.smedegaard reassigned T49: cron - contains a file licensed too vaguely for FSF from jonas.smedegaard to mak.

Please drop derived cron package: There is no need for deriving from Debian (issue is bogus).

jonas.smedegaard changed the status of T49: cron - contains a file licensed too vaguely for FSF from "Resolved" to "Invalid".

This issue is bogus: It is correct for metadata to describe license as Artistic, but code itself is licensed "same as Perl" which means dual-licensing as _either_ Artistic or GPL-1+.
