Cool - I signed up as owner to do summary statistics on some base
directories that said "NEED ADOPTING" or something like that before
noticing this message - should those be transfered to one of you guys?
If not, I'm happy to do it - is it manual at this point? I vaguely
remember seeing a reference to a script somewhere, but I can't
find it now.

Manually looking through the wiki for things that needed to be done, it
looks like 100% of the files have now been looked at, and there are just
a few files with open questions regarding their freedom, and a few that
have been verified as non-free.

So is it just waiting and seeing what happens to the questionable files
at this point, or can we go ahead with a preliminary build of the
modules without the known-bad and questionable files, to get a lot of
people's sound etc. working again?

If we can do that, is any builder script hacking help needed?

I put my name next to some things I / the Free Software Foundation are
