Actually, it's got nothing to do with freedom 0. That is the freedom to run a programme for any purpose, not an obligation to supply a programme that runs

The point is that gNewSense should be promoting free software, and not
supplying software that promotes non-free software. That's very different to putting restrictions on anybody who wants to re-write the code to make things
run differently.

And later on in my email, I suggested perhaps running our own plugins
repository (or cooperating with others to do so, as long as it's
completely free); while having its own drawbacks, it would definitely
promote free software.

I'd love to hear your thoughts.


i thought the FSF were working on such a repository?
