Outdated documentation

This page is out of date. Please use the main navigation to find the latest documentation.

Karl has written a list of actions that need to be taken when non-free software is identified. This list can be changed if required, but for now, if you discover non-free in gNS, can you please take the following actions:

1. Non-free package/ component identified
2. Bug filed against gnewsense package (or component)
3. Optional bug filed with Debian if it is relevant to them
4a. builder changed to not build/remove the package

OR

4b. builder changed to edit package to free it
5. Bug marked fixed, then closed

Cheers, Chris.
