[Debian-sf-devel] NonFree software and Debian SF

Dear Team,

I was very suprised and very disappointed to see that 
we now have non-free software in the debian-sf/gforge system.
(JPGraph, or something like that)

In any case, if it is not in free under debian, then we can and should
not use it. I would like to see why this decision was made and who made

I would like to ask you to reconsider this decision!

If you want gannt charts, here is a package that can handle them (under
BSD, and can be converted to GPL)

Here you can run gnuplot via perl

The GNOME Guppi could be embedded on the server side,
or ran on the client

MRTG / Multi Router Traffic Grapher

And the rrdtool :

(in c)

and from webmin (in perl)

I find it even crazy that you would use non-free software before using
perl or python. 

The guys from and will be sure to help out
if needed. 

I find that you should make a list of all non-free software in
gforge/debian-sf and give them 30 days to offer it to you under a free
license, otherwise we will post a public call for help to help replace
any and all non-free software to the entire free software word.

What do you think?
