Hey everyone :)

We are very excited to announce an RC1 of FreeSlack 14.2. Since we spoke last 
time, we purged mozilla firefox, mozilla thunderbird, and seamonkey, leaving, 
as far as we can tell, nothing else that would violate FSDG. The purge 
affected both 14.1 and 14.2 repositories, of course, so we no longer 
distribute these packages in any way.

The wiki installation page still points to 14.1, but once RC1 goes gold in a 
few days, it will change.

Regardless of 14.2 release status, we believe we are ready for a final look-
over by an FSDG compliance agent.

Main wiki:



More recent source with scripts for the entire process,
including deblobbing the DVD:

And finally, extra binary packages, including functional replacements for some 
of the omitted nonfree packages (lhasa, arj, icecat):

We are very hopeful this release finally meets FSDG. Please take a look and 
let us know.

Thanks a ton for your support :)
