I know Mark... I fully agree with the discipline of unifying repos in Maemo
main server... but if that means that they're going to judge which software
is "convenient" or not... then it's not so interesting...

In Debian repos you can find everything: free, non-free, restricted or
anything. Without any kind of censorship... I stopped using SuSE because of
this censorship...

Maemo is based on Debian not on SuSE... I hope...

Nevertheless I'm frustrated because of the community not for my individual

In fact, I've already downloaded kismet from a private repo, and now that I
do NOT trust Maemo anymore... I'm storing my own repo site, collecting the
deb packages for my 770 and anyone who cares about freedom of use and
continued service (what kind of service are we receiving from Nokia as Maemo
users?... we're supposed to be customers!)
