There is the Antifeatures Project Team[1] in the Free Software
Directory[2], it's still being built and the set of items that will be
reviewed are still being made.

It's a subgroup of the whole Free Software Directory review community.
And having an antifeature doesn't mean that the software is non-free.

I don't participate in the group as I'm not that inclined to review
advanced security issues, but I do hope my suggestion is bookmarked. The
last thing I want is seeing two instances of the same effort. Also
considering that the help given to the Free Software Directory also
eases the lives of package maintainers in free/libre system
distributions (occasionally there is also some discussion on how to
unite the works of that directory with the ones made by the distribution
projects, if I'm not mistaken, bill-auger and Donald_Hedlund were
talking about this).
