Re: [opensuse-project] Religious and political views in packages

In trying to define what's seems to be unwelcome with the audiences of
openSUSE, I find it hard to believe that anyone would be offended at
the fact that there is a piece of software that claims to be
Christian. That assumption alone is not baseless for there have been
no complaints about this software's description. Moreover, it would be
important to remember the all-encompassing nature of our software
index. If we, as a project, did not add a software like this one, I
would consider it offensive. Simply because people who are religious
would not be able to work with openSUSE and their Bible study

Please, let us keep in mind that we might be making a storm in a glass
of water. Not a big deal here, no big responses either. Let us leave
the matter alone.

Content should not be offensive, discriminatory, or derogatory. If you are not
sure if a piece of content is one of these things, it probably is.
Some examples of content which is permissable:

Some examples of content which are not permissible:

Religious texts
If you are unsure if something is considered approved content, ask on the
openSUSE-packaging mailing list.

and we can argue ad infinitum on the package but provides a religious text...
