An update and a translation from the Freenode IRC channel, I have filed
a freedom-issue regarding telegram-desktop. While I encourage you to
check the IRC logs for more information, a brief summary of the issue is
that the telegram-desktop client and its appropriately building
libraries are GPL/LGPL, but it only functions based on an interaction
with a non-free SaaSS. If it were to have any other functionality, this
would be a non-issue.
An email has been sent to the FSF on the matter, as I suspect this is a
matter of precendence and is likely applicable to a few other
FSF-endorsed GNU/Linux distributions.
