Tom Callaway of Fedora says gNewSense's 'afio' is non-free:

and he implies that there's lots more non-free stuff due to lack of software
auditing, but he doesn't name other packages.  Maybe if we ask him he'll
give some pointers that could help us (Brian) to remove more non-free bits?

Someone commented:
