Blacklist nonfree intel-mkl and intel-mkl-static
The intel-mkl and intel-mkl-static are nonfree because - They lack corresponding source code: The Arch Linux PKGBUILD only ships binaries and no compilation takes place. - The license (the Intel Simplified Software License[1]) prohibits reverse engineering, decompilation, and disassembly. More specifically these freedoms aren't granted: > Freedom 1: The freedom to study how the program works, and change it > to make it do what you wish. > Freedom 3: The freedom to improve the program, and release your > improvements (and modified versions in general) to the public, > so that the whole community benefits.
