  Description     : An anonymity and free-speech protecting decentralised darknet system.


Freenet is free software which lets you publish and obtain information on
the Internet without fear of censorship. To achieve this freedom, the
network is entirely decentralized and publishers and consumers of
information are anonymous. Without anonymity there can never be true freedom
of speech, and without decentralization the network will be vulnerable to
attack.

Communications by Freenet nodes are encrypted and are "routed-through" other
nodes to make it extremely difficult to determine who is requesting the
information and what its content is.

See http://freenetproject.org/whatis.html for more info.

Hi,

I already thought (as many others) about having Freenet in Debian.
Actually, it was packaged in Debian several years ago, as you cas see it 
at http://snapshot.debian.net/package/freenet
Unfortunately, there are these bugs always in open status :
- https://bugs.freenetproject.org/view.php?id=1277
- https://bugs.freenetproject.org/view.php?id=1276
So, they don't want to have an official Debian package before version 
1.0 because it needs to be updated frequently.
I don't think they have changed their minds.
Am I wrong ?

Would the Experimental, or Volatile repository be suitable for this package? Wine has been in main for aeons, despite having a new version released approximately fortnightly, so I don't think the short development cycle is *per se* a problem, though any updates that change the protocol would need accounting for, which is why volatile seems a reasonable route to go.

Hi,

FYI, unofficial(or maybe semi-official, since things are pushed to
Freenet's official GitHub) Debian/Ubuntu packages are available from:

http://people.debian.org/~mhatta/debian/freenet/

I'm still not sure how it can be nicely incorporated into the mainline
Debian development -- possibly volatile?

Hi,

Just to let people know that we've done some more work on debian packaging for
freenet. It's not yet suitable for normal users, nor is it suitable for being
included in debian, but interested people are welcome to have a look, and any
help would be much appreciated.

http://github.com/freenet/debian-staging

I'll be building them sporadically and dumping them here:

https://downloads.freenetproject.org/~infinity0/

When things start to get a bit more stable I'll create an APT repository for
them, too.

Inclusion in debian-main (ie. compliance with debian policy) are eventual goals
but our current focus is to first get a working and robust package.

Is it allowed to have a permanent release critical bug against a package? 
If so, would that allow a freenet package to be added to unstable but
never migrate to testing or stable?  The text for the release critical bug
could be "Freenet is not ready for a stable release".

I don't know whether such a thing would work or is even possible or
allowed under Debian policy.
