Sorry for not fully doing my homework. I did not find anything on this
list except for this message,[1] but after searching gnu-linux-libre I
do see and have now read several threads including this one.[2] I have
also taken a look at Guix's package source for ungoogled-chromium, and I
think everything seems clear now, but if you don't mind I'd appreciate
clarification on one point:

Guix's package source contains what appears to me to be a whitelist of
"preserved-third-party-files", each labeled with a known free license,
implying that all other upstream third-party files, including any
problematic ones, are excluded. If I'm understanding this correctly,
does this mean that ungoogled-chromium *as packaged by Guix* is
completely free, but that this should not be taken to mean that upstream
is necessarily completely free?

Thanks. I understand if you are weary of this topic, and I hope you
don't mind providing this one clarification.
