Please distinguish between "nonfree scripts" and "librejs-unrecognized

Note that at it
specifies that "All client-side JavaScript (when served directly or
after being compiled, arranged, augmented, or combined), is licensed
under the "MIT Expat" license."

There may be other concerns about the reliability of the JS, but I have
every reason to think that 100% of the web interface is usable with the
freely-licensed JS enabled. LibreJS not recognizing it as free is an
issue with the way the licenses are presented and/or a problem with
LibreJS. The license of the software isn't defined by LibreJS's recognition.
