[new] what is a GNU package? (#1)
by a member of the hurd (#-1) on Mon Jun 21st, 2004 at 11:32:22 GMT

I'd like to know what are the criteria for a package to be consider "GNU" (that is, to be included in the GNU distribution). Apache, X, PHP, ... are considered "parts" of the GNU system, but KDE, Linux, ... are not.

The Debian project has clear frontiers. It is easy to check whether certain software is in Debian "main", in Debian non-free, etc. (there must be an official deb package for it). But as GNU is not a "distribution" it is hard to define the GNU system. Has the FSF any clear statement about what is inside and outside of the GNU system? (or the GNU/Linux system) For when a FSF sponsored distribution? (my very humble opinion is that FSF should get closer to Debian, the only free-software working distro that clearly separates free and non-free software)

[new] posting (#3)

Dan had the idea of establishing a permanent irc channel on freenode. The idea is that it could be an informal place to chat about coding in and for libraries. It's a newbie friendly channel so feel free to join us if you've never used irc before...and if you are a veteran that's ok too :-)
