Hello everyone,

sr#81625 want's to add 'sword', a bible study tool to openSUSE:Factory.
While that is totally fine, the spec file %description contains stuff

+The SWORD Project is an effort to create an ever expanding software
package for
+research and study of God and His Word.

While I don't care much for that particular bedtime story, others may
well be offended by biased religious views (even more so if their's
differing). Of course, this may equally apply to policitcal views or
offensive words.
As of political - do we have to ban each package that contains the
FSF manifest (usually as part of their invariant section in their
GFDL docs?) ...
Good point, BTW. ;-)
Mit freundlichen Grüßen,
Sascha Peilicke
