I'm not sure but I think this message did not go to the list?

I'm not a Parabola dev, but trying to understand this:

libre is for free software, so Hello should not be a problem in this
regard. I should not have questioned this and there clearly are reasons
to use only free software but some restrictive services. Sorry.

Then again, some things on the libre blacklist are blacklisted because
of support for Skype / non-privacy search engines / ….

What I want is no SaaSS. Right now the description of nonprism in the
Wiki isn't very clear ("nonprism contains packages provided by the
Parabola community without services under global data surveillance
programs like PRISM.") and I'm not sure its policy is what I want, even
though the de facto changes are what I want.

> SSAS is evil, but if Firefox Hello falls in such category, as some are suggesting, then it seems to me that any XMPP service should too.

For XMPP, you can choose which provider to use, like e-mail. You can
switch to a different provider whenever you want to. You can also host
your own. XMPP is not as restrictive as Hello.
