In general, I think we should avoid doing that. In this case, the advertisement is also present on the upstream github page, via the README, which is also in the Debian package, so removing it from the Debian package description will not remove the advertisement entirely. Personally I'd prefer to not have it present in any of the locations, but leaving it in the README in Debian and upstream seems like a reasonable compromise. > No, at worst this is misuse of Debian resources for commercial gain - > i.e. using long description field for advertising a non-free service. I got the impression that Faidon is not involved with SSLMate so this and the relevant DMUP clause does not seem to apply in this case. -- bye, pabs https://wiki.debian.org/PaulWise _______________________________________________ Pkg-go-maintainers mailing list Pkgfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.alioth.debian.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/pkg-go-maintainers
