I think fedora should port it if they want it... the gns+builder dev
(singular) has enough on his plate.

Sure, I mean, in the far out long term :-)

Similarly, I forgot about gentoo; I imagine the package licenses
metadata could be construed to create a 100% Free distro also.

There was talk of adding a --gpl-only=[yes,no] portage (emerge?) switch, but afaik it never transpired (was it this list or another talk of this switch came up on?)
