Solved with https://wiki.parabola.nu/index.php?title=Freenet&action=historysubmit&type=revision&diff=21052&oldid=17494.

pribib: Thank you for the tip. The change was easily done by replacing {{AUR|freenet}} with {{Pkg|freenet}}. Correcting such little things improves the wiki and helps a lot.

  • Priority changed from bug to freedom issue
  • Status changed from open to fixed
  • Tracker changed from Bug to Housekeeping

thanks both to pribib and theova for finding and correcting these stray things that got in

FWIW, i checked to see how many other articles there were using "Template:AUR"
https://wiki.parabola.nu/Template:AUR

and there are quite a few (i added this link to the main description)
https://wiki.parabola.nu/index.php?title=Special:WhatLinksHere/Template:AUR&limit=500

my guess is that no pages should be suggesting to use the AUR, and that "Template:AUR" should not even exist on the parabola wiki; or it should be a black hole to catch stray flies

To cite FSDG (from post of bill-auger):

Nor should the distribution refer to third-party repositories that are not committed to only
including free software; even if they only have free software today, that may not be true
tomorrow. Programs in the system should not suggest installing nonfree plugins, documentation,
and so on.

So I think it is clear, that the AUR packages should not be mentioned at all in the ParabolaWiki.

I would like to work on this issue the next days.

sure please do - if you come across any AUR package that looks like it is an essential part of an important article, you can suggest it as packaging request on this bug tracker

Good news: It is mostly done. There are a few pages in other languages (Español, Русский, ...) left which I do not understand. It would be good, if someone else could have a look at it.

It is to notice, that many AUR packages are now included in [community] or [pcr] or that the functions of AUR packages are included in other packages.

As for the Template:AUR, I've changed it, so that

Warning: This page points to an AUR package. Please remove the link. Reason: See Issue#1983

is displayed. It does not have to be exactly this text, but I think having a template with a warning (vs not having a template at all) helps to detect the packages.

Furthermore I have added a section "FSDG" to the page Help:Editing: https://wiki.parabola.nu/Help:Editing#FSDG . In the steps https://wiki.parabola.nu/Help:Editing#Importing_from_Archwiki is now clearly stated, that AUR packages shall be removed.
