have no impact in determining whether a piece of software belongs
in a FSDG distro or not. Good thing I double-checked with the
guidelines, because they actually do.

List of good patches:

Compare to QTWebengine's (outdated) Chromium:

This doesn't tell us much unfortunately.

- Debian freedom patches not applied, e.g. files missing licenses:

What does that mean exactly? If I were to guess, lintian incorrectly
confused trace_data.js for a blob, and ungoogled-chromium is reversing
that overstep.

- There may still be connections made to Google API.

I'm just
not convinced they completely resolved it in their fork. So far
ungoogled-chromium is the only project I've compiled and ran with
Wireshark that did not have random connections to while the
browser is idling.

By *the only project* do you mean you also tested with Qt
Webengine-based programs? Conclusions about Chromium need
not apply to Qt Webengine.
