Hi All,

in the last few days we had a small flood, a trickle compared with Noah's, on
the mailing list about some package distributing religious content.
The discussion got hijacked by personal views totally ignoring the fact that
we already have guidelines for these situations...

A good pickup here.


http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Packaging_guidelines#Legal

Some examples of content which are not permissible:
.....
Religious texts

BUT, and "here is the rub", *is* it a "religious text" ?


.....

We shall decide


"We shall decide"....?

Who exactly is "we"? :-)


what we should do.
1. Scrap the rule
or
2. Apply the rule.

I am still waiting for an answer to my question about what would happen if someone wanted to put software in Factory which helped people who hold a view that the holocaust did not happen.

I understand that my question has no direct reference to "the bible" or "informing Christians" (or whatever) but nevertheless I consider this to be a legitimate question to be asked as part of this discussion.
