Privacy Issue #3297
[netsurf] latest libre builds contains nonfree search engine
libre/netsurf 3.10-3.parabola1 [installed]
Lightweight and fast web browser, without non-privacy remote services
slaps google search right in main homepage and contains other nonprivacy search engine too.
maybe the libre patch is outdated and doesn't work anymore. please investigate.

- Status changed from unconfirmed to info needed
indeed, we like to be clear that libre and privacy concerns are very different, and handled differently - eg: [libre] is mandatory - [nonprism] is optional
probably, the patches need re-working; but regardless, there may be some housekeeping in order - the blacklist entry is missing a BR reference; but it appears that the package is in libre only for privacy reasons - it probably should have been in nonprism all along - i suppose that this ticket could be the BR reference; and we can try to get this properly documented
$ grep netsurf blacklist.txt netsurf:netsurf:::[uses-nonfree] has non-privacy search engines
