Looks like a freedom bug, and probably should be removed, as debian did
for their most recent release earlier this year.  Debian bug report,
which is now linked in bug comments, is at

IIUC, this has to do with usability bugs.  Because DeltaH is essentially
Hardy, then a bug in Hardy is /not/ a bug in gNewSense, since we don't
have the manpower to fix them.  There are packages that are changed (or
even removed), so it is a bug /if/ it is caused by those changes.

Freedom bugs, on the other hand, are what we are trying to squash with
gNewSense, so all freedom bugs are gNewSense bugs, and should be reported.
