Could this change? I mean, could this repository be ousted from openSUSE but
still being accessible by openSUSE users if they want to? Instructions could
be given in forums outside the wiki or the official openSUSE community
sites.

That's not a good idea, as long as that software doesnt cause legal
problems or is troublesome to maintain, Im fine with it.


It would worth a lot to make this little step and touch (and maybe open) the
door of the FSF.

Kinda opening the door of the aslylum you mean ? oh, no thanks.

Remove those packages gives no benefit to users, neither does
following the FSF political agenda.


Agreed. Doing this would take openSUSE into the Dark Ages. We're
working hard on making openSUSE useable.. not making it useless.

So.. another -1 vote. Do not do this.

C.

Agreed. If one wanted this they could just chose Debian.
