Hi, everybody.

It's that time, again. The week went something a little like this:

0. Bugs:

Bug page:
Bug stats:

27 bugs.

This is an decrease of 2 from last week.  Thanks to all of those who
did work on bugs, this week.

1.  Package Freedom stats:

PFV page:
PFV stats:

We have 112 100% free package sections, which means that MAIN is 100%
free, as defined by the FSF.

If you want to use Markus' script, to update the stats, look here:

Any one can (and should) use it.

2.  Report on Suspected non-free table:

3.  As you'll have seem from my previous email, we are now 100% free
in MAIN.  This means we can move on to some kernel checking (KFV). The
drivers section is the first priority.

I want to be able to report weekly on this, as I have done with the
PFV stuff. If somebody can take the time to add a table to the
Bugs/PFV area, that would really help my reporting.

I have raised bug 133, so that we can look at ways of comparing work
done, to new releases.  Hopefully someone cleverer than myself will be
able to write a script to compare differences, and thus save much
duplicated effort.  It's really important that Marcus' script is
adapted, so that the same output can be achieved for KFV work.  Any
one know Perl?

Basically, the near future is going to be a challenging time for me,
so if anyone can help with the workload, it would be really

4.  Finally, it's been a productive week, with notable contributions
from jorgejbe, Ark74, Pitof and crap0101.
