[openFATE 317073] Take off the repos "fresh memory" as the software went commerical and is now on payment.
Feature changed by: Christian Boltz (cboltz)
Feature #317073, revision 4
Title: Take off the repos "fresh memory" as the software went
commerical and is now on payment.

- openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE Distribution: Rejected by Christian Boltz (cboltz)
+ reject reason: Packages only available in the "Education" repo don't
+ fit under "openSUSE distribution", and as you probably noticed, the
+ package maintainer never noticed this feature request.
+ Please contact the package maintainer directly to get this sorted out.
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Stakanov Schufter (stakanov)
Partner organization:

Please update freshmemory to the latest version available with new
features. Current version 1.1.1 from 20 october. Allows to edit words
within the cards during the repetition. Fresh memory package is part of
the "education" repository.
Current version is 1.0+hg

From version 1.2 onward this software is on payment. 1.1.1 could still
be provided but is a bit of "hidden commercial promo" because then
people would find a software that is not going to be updated any more.
So, probably the software should be taken off the repo "education".
Pauker is a close substitute (although unfortunately not actively
developed any more AFAIK.
To avoid misunderstanding: I am not against free software vs free beer.
But in free repos, software that requires a 10 dollar activation should
not be promoted for free (as long as the author does not pay for it, as
a commercial act). Who wishes to buy it can find it by herself and go
to the website for installation.
