Notability and sources[edit]

Download-sites and existence in various packaging systems do not confer notability. To start, read the relevant guidelines, e.g., reliable sources, notability, third-party sources. So far, no useful sources have been given. TEDickey (talk) 10:25, 21 October 2015 (UTC)

Inclusion into, and available from, peer-reviewed third-party packaging systems surely does qualify as a third-party source. The inclusion was not even at all sanctioned by the developers upstream (e.g., not by anyone who worked on this in the OpenBSD tree, from what I could tell, and mg is not even available for download directly from OpenBSD, where it is maintained) — it was an independent action by independent actors.

The guidelines for notability do not pay any attention to that sort of thing. You might try reading the guidelines, to make the discussion focused. TEDickey (talk) 09:15, 22 October 2015 (UTC)
