i joined the forum to ask about libertybsd. when i joined, the most recent  
update was 3 months old (whether significant update or not, i couldnt tell.)

the update was on the scripts on github. i didnt want to necro a thread that  
old, but now there is a new one. very interested in libertybsd, i hope it  
moves forward. seems like the only truly free software bsd out there. (i dont  
think it will ever get fsf approved.

ive talked to rms about it, but if i simply apply the publically-known  
guidelines i dont think it will get approval. but thats different from not  
being free, the fsf guidelines go beyond "no non-free software.") even being  
called "bsd" could be a potential issue, because it refers to bsd.
