Thank you for your bug report.

On a Trisquel 6.0 system with default configuration and gkermit installed the output of apt-cache show gkermit is:

As you can see this does not recommend proprietary software. If your output is different please add ALL of it here. Otherwise please say what proprietary software it recommends and give the steps needed to recreate the offending output.

I seem to have filed against wrong version. On version 5.5 arch amd64 the output is (regardless if the package is installed)

That mentioned package is not included in Trisquel atm. Looks like it's in multiverse (suggesting non-free) in ubuntu and non-free in debian. However, the actual licensing details of the newer version in ubuntu seem like a bsd license which is free. Note the version numbers.

And the homepage puts that forth in cleartext

Assigning to upstream:

See Debian bug #732938 (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=732938)

As of version 9 ckermit is not proprietary software but in fact free software. So the bug isn't quite that it recommends non-free software it is that the description is incorrect and ckermit should not be labeled as of free software (at least version 9 isn't.)

The version with a free software license is now in Trusty multiverse. Accordingly I've coded and tested a patch[1] to pull it in to Belenos.
