Or maybe the FSF could use mirror.fsf.org to share freedom?

An open tracker could be possible on GNU / FSF servers?


Xylon and more at Parabola have created Pacman 2 Pacman, a plugin that
offer the way of decentralization protocol and servers of the package
manager utility.


Your help should be helpfull and a warranty of continuity of freedom for
the users.


P.S.: From memories, it is the first package manager that use P2P
protocol in the history of computer sciences, no?
