Librepup – a Libre Linux distribution, based on Puppy, but built on Trisquel packages.

It’s a puplet based on tahrpup 6.0.2 that:
– Uses Trisquel 7 packages instead of Ubuntu 14.04 ones; most package versions are the same as in tahrpup
– Replaces Pale Moon with QupZilla
– Replaces Linux with Linux-libre and does not ship the non-free firmware required for some devices

The Librepup developer philosophy:

“I believe every distro should be libre by default, with clearly-labeled non-free add-ons for the users that decide they want them. For example – I’d like Puppy (and any other distro) to ship with Linux-libre, while offering users the ability to switch to Linux. Otherwise, free software won’t become the norm in the software industry.

Therefore, the process of creating Librepup derivatives has been automated and simplified (see later). If you’re interested in creating Puppy derivatives, I encourage you to use Librepup as a base, since other Puppy releases contain non-free components and may have additional, hidden ones: it’s a privacy and security risk for your users. Even if you wish to add non-free components to your derivative (which is strongly discouraged), a Librepup derivative with one or more, non-free components is much better (for your users) than a traditional Puppy derivative, with an unknown number of such threats, especially if these components are labeled properly as non-free ones and the user deliberately accepts the risk involved in using them, despite of all warnings.

All packages that work on tahrpup (except third-party drivers, which need to be rebuilt) work on Librepup as well.”
