Freedom issue #123
wanted: blacklist for nonfree aur packages
your-aur-freedom, to complement your-freedom.
could start with very highly voted aur packages, like google-talkplugin.
(presuming it is non-free!)

I think that is a excellent idea! You can to do a PKGBUILD based from your-freedom including a blacklist with AUR non-free packages or send to us only the blacklist file with the AUR non-free packages included to create a package about it. You must to create a blacklist similar to it ==> https://projects.parabolagnulinux.org/blacklist.git/plain/blacklist.txt

I've made a list of the 7 pages of most popular aur packages. Because my time is limited, maybe I'm wrong about some package, but I'm prudent. I've probably forgotten some non-free packages, beause I can't check all packages. A "?" indicate that I'm not sure if the package is non-free or not.
I've also made a list of all non-free packages on the popular archlinux-fr repository.

I'm not sure if this is still being made, but I decided to check through some old AUR packages I have installed and made this list which could be added to it:
deb2targz::Missing license information
firefox-nightly::Recommends non-free software
jockey::Recommends non-free drivers
teamspeak-plugin-love-svn::Only useful in combination with non-free software
teamspeak-plugin-massmover::Only useful in combination with non-free software
teamspeak3-soundpack-portal::Only useful in combination with non-free software
teamspeak3-soundpack-rc1-female::Only useful in combination with non-free software
teamspeak3-theme-minecraft-forever::Only useful in combination with non-free software
teamspeakctrl::Only useful in combination with non-free software

- skype4pidgin (only useful in combination with non-free software)
- firefox-beta-bin for the same reasons as firefox-nightly
- steam, obviously
- linuxqq, non-free adware
- foremost, non-free software
- lib32-nvidia-utils-beta, non-free software
- huludesktop, non-free software
- true-combat, non-free software
It's still the 7 first pages of most voted AUR packages. I try to keep it in the right order, to keep the verification easy.
