Package: wnpp Severity: wishlist * Package name : malcontent Version : 0.4.0 Upstream Author : Philip Withnall / Endless * URL : https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/pwithnall/malcontent * License : LGPL-2.1+ Programming Lang: C with GObject Description : library for parental control of applications
malcontent implements support for restricting the type of content accessible to non-administrator accounts on a Linux system. Typically, when this is used, a non-administrator account will be for a child using the system; and the administrator accounts will be for the parents; and the content being filtered will be apps which are not suitable for the child to use, due to (for example) being too violent. This is not a security boundary, and a sufficiently technically advanced user may always work around these parental controls. malcontent is not a mandatory access control (MAC) system like AppArmor or SELinux. However, its correct use by applications should provide enough of an obstacle to prevent users easily or accidentally having access to content which they shouldn’t. ---- Flatpak 1.5.1+ will optionally use this library to check for permission to install and run apps. I don't intend to package or maintain it myself, but if someone else maintains it, I'm willing to enable the dependency in Flatpak. Presumably other projects, such as GNOME Shell, will gain a similar optional dependency.
