that bug report is about "ungoogled-chromium may contain Widevine DRM"

it is implicit, but I *must* stress it, that this means
"ungoogled-chromium Guix package" (the package definition is in Guile
and is almost human readeable)

this bug report was deeply analyzed by several Guix team members,
I contributed a little bit (I am not a mainteiner of Guix), and now it's
closed since ungoogled-chromium distributed as part of Guix does *not*
contain Widevine DRM

there are other bug reports about ungoogled-chromium in Guix:;include=subject%3Achromium;package=Guix
and all DFSG related ones was addressed in a timely manner

Interesting analysis, I'm almost sure all the issues pointed in that
analisys are _well_ addressed in ungoogled-chromium from Guix, if you or
any other person find some *specific* issue in that package please file
a proper bug report via address@hidden

AFAIK all Guix mainainers are working hard to keep Guix FSDG compliant,
if you want to help please point to *specific* issues

You are wrong, is not a freedom
critical bug
