what about rust - bill-auger - 17 days ago -

i know that some people have expressed concerns; but not formally
addressed by the FSDG work-group - there is no imperative for
any distro to do anything, without a strong recommendation by
the FSDG work-group

off-hand, i can offer only these few observations:

A) if there is a freedom problem with rust, it would probably be
exactly the same problem for all mozilla things
B) rust is not a new program; and the alleged problem is obvious
- so the same concern could have been raised many years ago;
but it has not
C) pretty much every distro has rust, firefox, thunderbird, etc;
but those have never been seen as a problem
D) rust has never been seen as a problem by gnuzilla either
E) to my knowledge. it has not been discussed on any of the of
the parabola, FSDG, gnuzilla, or FSD mailing lists;
