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 like the name "our-freedom" better for this :D

#4 Updated by Sinma almost 6 years ago

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.

#5 Updated by TheLastProject almost 6 years ago

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:

bin32-teamspeak2::Non-free software
deb2targz::Missing license information
firefox-nightly::Recommends non-free software
jockey::Recommends non-free drivers
savage2::Non-free software
teamspeak-plugin-love-svn::Only useful in combination with non-free software
teamspeak-plugin-massmover::Only useful in combination with non-free software
teamspeak2::Non-free software
teamspeak3::Non-free software
teamspeak3-server::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
tss2_rc2::Non-free software
teamviewer::Non-free software

Deb2targz: it's useless (http://www.miketaylor.org.uk/tech/deb/), and I don't think it's used by many persons, but I add it though.

I've added all your suggestions to the list.

#7 Updated by Sinma over 5 years ago

Packages added:
  • 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.

Sorry for the noise, it's late (23h34 here), and I forget to save the file before sending!

Now that our-freedom exists, can we close this issue?

Sure, where can our-freedom be found?

Never-mind, apparently I have gone more crazy than I thought...

Is anyone still working on this issue or should we consider a whitelist? AUR is very large either way, and new packages are added daily.
Eventually good packages with enough demand could be added to PCR, or PUR (which never really took off).
