Nice, how about adding GNU/Hurd as one of the supported operating systems?

I added that information as well. A few time ago Sven asked for links to different distribution's parted package but as for the gnu website I'm not supposed to link to any page containing non-free software. So most(if not all) distribution links are "not welcome" on gnu.org page.

Huh ? since when is parted packaged version for the different distribs
considered non-free ? There must be some reality strange thing going on at the
FSF if they forbid to link to the actual parted package page. What and they
releasing documentation under non-free licence anyway and such.


Sven Luther

Well it could be my understanding of the Webmaster Documentation on the gnu.org website... I'll recheck that later tonight!

If it is so, i question the interest of participating in this gnu project over
managing a fork or whatever, as i do for debian anyway. Anyone claiming
debian's parted package is in any way non-free is on serious crack. Don't know
about the other distribs, but i seriously doubt they include any non-free
code, which would be a violation of the GPL.

I think you totally misunderstood me... I never claimed that parted (debian or not) is or contains in any way non-free things. I think I misunderstood the webmaster's guideline too on the gnu.org website. After rereading it I don't see anything against linking to the parted package on the different distribution. I'll add the debian,fedora packages in a few mins. If you have any that you would like me to add just send an email with the appropriate link!
