that seems an accurate perception to me - in it's current state it is
not fit for the task - i would not want to implement that at all until
each entry had clearly noted precisely what the problems are and what
was done to correct them - but the libreplanet list is not so complete
in that way either

i think the idea has potential though - it is far from a witch hunt but
more of a rescue mission - the majority of packages on the parabola
blacklist have been modified to fit the FSDG and are available in
parabola renamed like 'foo-libre' - what is missing from too many is the
documentation trail that could inform others how to liberate them in
other distros - that would need to be made a more rigorous policy to
make this a viable reference for all

from reading the documentation that is there though, it seems clear that
the original intention was to keep the parabola blacklist and the
libreplanet list in sync - as mutual references for each other
