This should really not be in a software distribution should it? Not to
take a stand against political or religous beliefs, but this package
has no binaries, no system related documentation, nothing to do with
linux, hurd, debian, programming or even remotely have anything
considered useful from an operating system standpoint.

This package is nothing more than a mirror of a web site with political
propoganda. Unless we plan on having libertarian.deb, communism.deb,
capitalism.deb etc...I think this package needs to be removed period.

If not done so willingly, I will file a grave bug, as it reflects on
the distribution as a whole, and gives the impression that we, as a
group/project, support this political standpoint (some may, some don't,
the point is we don't need political tension in the dist).

Anarchist FAQ for Debian

This package is essentially equivalent to the original tarballs of the
Anarchist FAQ, which I also maintain. They can always be found at:


Do we really want to package html mirrors? Can we package up
www.whitehouse.gov mirrors too?
