The latest notes from the Debian anti-harassment team on Wednesday caught my attention when reading, "We were requested to advice on the appropriateness of a certain package in the Debian archive. Our decision resulted in the package pending removal from the archive." Curiosity got the best of me... What package was deemed too inappropriate for the Debian archive?

When digging further, the package raised to the Debian Anti-Harassment Team was "Weboob." Weboob is short for "Web Outside of Browsers" as it's an open-source collection of software to script and automate the parsing/scraping/gathering-via-API of web data so that it can be consumed by different modules/applications. Weboob.org describes itself as "Weboob is a collection of applications able to interact with websites, without requiring the user to open them in a browser. It also provides well-defined APIs to talk to websites lacking one."

Weboob is Python-based and offers Qt-based user interfaces for accessing these different modules for reading data from different web-sites outside of any conventional web browser. Those interested can learn more about the software at Weboob.org. But, yes, the name is juvenile and likely inappropriate in most professional/corporate environments. Also raised were issues with the icons/artwork like: [pic related]

Additionally, Weboob has some module/application names as well with "boob" in the string. Silly and juvenile, but should this package, which isn't installed by default on Debian or otherwise featured by the Linux distribution, worth removing from the package repository over the naming convention?

Weboob was initially added to Debian back in 2010 and has been maintained since although briefly removed. A few months back though the issue was raised over the name/project having sexual references and that goes against the Debian Diversity Statement and values.

During the discussions over the project's name, the following statement was added by the package maintainer to it: "Note from the Maintainer: This software, included binaries and maybe other content contain childish references to a specific women's body part. Upstream refused to rename it. There is no diminishing or insulting message so I decided to keep it in the archive. You may nevertheless feel uncomfortable using this tool.'"

The Debian Anti-Harassment Team ruled that Weboob is against the Debian Code of Conduct in needing to be respectful. The team called for the program's removal from the Debian archive or to otherwise patch/fork it to remove the name/branding. Should the package not be addressed, they say the Debian FTP master should unilaterally remove the package.

[British] Debian Project Leader Chris Lamb has indeed gone ahead with the request to the Debian FTP master to remove Weboob.

Who seriously cares about that frog suite?

we should also do away with the notion that a file is REQUIRED to be opened whenever the requester decides it has "permission" and the FILE not its "master" fileSYSTEM(of oppression) should decide whether it WANTS to be opened;;; every FILE should have a ROUTINE (not a PROGRAM) that determines whether it consents to the the OPEN command and it should be able to CLOSE Itself whenever it decides to rescind the consent

So they are going to remove functionality from their operating system because something has boob in the name? Sounds like a pretty logical conclusion to me to assume that if your OS has any sort of CoC, anti-harassment, etc, you run the risk of losing functionality in your OS over things you don't care about.

What promise do we have that some feature we depend on won't trigger some SJW and they'll have that feature removed?

weboob
Fucking knew it'd be them. I was even thinking of making a thread about weboob, although I hadn't heard they were being censored by debcuck. They have modules for many sites so you can access your bank, track parcels, watch porn, etc without a browser, either with a cli or gui. Link for anyone interested: weboob.org/

someone submit a bug report and request to have all instances of "ass" removed from Debian, not just packages about passwords but also /etc/passwd, manpages, wiki etc.

it's the same principle, maybe even worse because asses have been more important sexual features than tits far longer in the history of hominoids

I just skimmed through some of their bug tracker and mailing list pages about the issue and from the sheer amount of pseudo psychological analysis and philosophizing poured into countless paragraphs of text you can clearly see that these people are no different than the impotent idiots that suddenly got into positions of power just to punish people for self satisfaction that have existed in history, whether it was the Jacobins, Rotfront members, Politkomissars, Stasi IMs and whatnot.
They just can't plain say that they're pissed these, ugh, white male software developers aren't self loathing, subservient members of the collective and change the name at the first peep.
Weimar 2.0 barricade fights are gonna be interesting with these people.

Maybe some of the Weboob authors do not think highly of woman but we're discussing the package content and not judging people's thoughts (which we cannot be sure to know anyway).
sure thing buddy

lol weboob (in its conceptual form) is the only proper way to deal with the web. it's impossible to make web browsers that are fast or even make a website with a good GUI. the solution is to scrape shit and feed it into your own GUI. of course debian fags would want it removed because it makes them feel uncomfortable in their """professional""" environment

Eli Long

Funny, I was actually thinking of developing something like this a couple weeks ago, I never knew this existed. I mainly wanted it for news & tutorial websites which just return plaintext, but for some reason in CY+3 need 30MB of JS and CSS just to do that. Maybe I'll contribute some modules to weboob for the sites I want since I don't have to build this system myself

To most sane people "weboob" sounds completely normal, If someone would have asked me yesterday I would have guessed "weboob" is a name of a Chinese software company.
It's not like the software is fucking called WEBTITSRIPPER69 or something.

I feel very uneasy when maintainers of the distro I use are zealots who are for some obscure political reasons willing to remove software used by thousands of people.
Some people spent countless hours making/maintaining the package just to help people and now all that work is gone, collateral damage.
Users will have to go through hoops to keep their software up to date, not a problem.
Thousands of people will miss out on using cool software, acceptable casualties.

I guess it's human nature to abuse the power you have over others, still you should have some standards and not do so. The fact that it's not just virtue signaling anymore, but actual harm being done to users is what worries me most. (admittedly small harm, for now)

It's something I've thought about a lot but never bothered looking for the solution. Sounds nice for casual browsing, but I wouldn't trust the maintainer for something like a banking website. I really wish they had some sort of API scraping toolkit for probing websites to go along with this.

This is why I don't mind all the fractured package repos around Linux distros. So shit like this doesn't affect the entire ecosystem.

Because they don't know any better. People who have been told all their lives one thing is the only way and who live in an environment where any ungoodthink is punished with exile never a chance. They fall for it because it's everything they know, and it'll only get worse as challenging people to think for themselves is being banned.

Libertarian is a subset of liberal, especially under a democracy where they have interchangeable end results, i.e. control by a small yet distributed and mutually hostile group of crowd movers. This remains true despite the words currently holding certain semiotic/cultural connotations (i.e. people usually think of one as right wing and of the other as left wing even though the distinction is nearly irrelevant in that particular case).

It's called weboob because it's an acronym and also a pun. People used to be less hung-up and make jokes like this all the time, before everything became monitized, corporate, sterile, and the SJWs showed up to enforce the boring policitally-correct environment. Shit sucks, man. Nobody 20-30 years ago would have imagined the future would be so grim, grey, and lifeless. Hell, I'd rather be back there and using a 8 or 16-bit computer with 2400 baud modem to call dialup BBS. At least back then the future seemed bright.

CONSPIRACY PROPOSAL

what if that's not the real reason why they purged it? the real reason is jews bribed key debian people. this "boob" argument is just official explanation

and why jews would bribe debian?
because this project allows access of jewish websites and services without jewish:
-ads
-javascript tracking
-stupid jewish user interface

this project could extremely hurt jewish profits. jews will do everything to holocaust it
Debian got bribed

Sebastian Butler

While I don't doubt you're right, the main problem is the CoC.
The thing about the CoCk is that it gives them a valid excuse to just simply remove non-kosher stuff.
You use subjective words like "harassment" and "sexism", then you fucking kill anyone you don't like for that, but defend the strongest ally because it's not harassment/sexism when he's doing it.

People who don't take things too seriously and aren't prude faggots. Also you have to realize frogs are much more open sexually than burgers, boobs are not at all offensive in France. Juvenile yes, but it wouldn't offend any guy (much less women, even burger women wouldn't be offended, it's only soyboys who whine about it).
