I think it is the “DIALOG” package that shipped with FD1.1.

Correct. Although, I hear the was another very buggy one that was around before 
DOSLFN. I don’t know the name.

There is still UDVD2. It has been permitted to remain for now. However, in the 
long term, Jim has stated he would like to see it replaced with another

CURL is probably fine. But, it completely failed LSM verification. It is listed 
as being GPL. It’s license is clearly not. I’m not looking at it right now. 
But, if I recall correctly, i think it was either BSD or BSD-like. There were 
basic directives played out regarding what packages get included in FD1.2. I 
temporarily bent these restrictions for a couple highly demanded packages like 
4DOS. But, for most, I did not. That being said, CURL should be fixable if the 
license info is corrected and sources are included.

I didn’t do any temporary rule bending on these. They are probably fixable. 
However, I think there is a PING included in MTCP as well.

It is on the ibiblio repository.

Mobile security can be enabling, not merely restricting. Employees who
bring their own devices (BYOD) to work are irked by the imposition of MDM
restrictions. Mobile Device Manager Plus allows you to control only the
apps on BYO-devices by containerizing them, leaving personal data untouched!
