IMHO it would be best to not use *any* canonical services for an
instance gNewSense would run (with the exception of equal peer
federation type services if those are offered), as that would then
allows the gNewSense project to do a kind of informal "Freedom
Verification" on the code.

I'm missing why this would have to be the case.

It's in theory going to be AGPLv3; and there would be nothing stopping
us from making it more free w.r.t. things AGPLv3 doesn't address
specifically, such as data availability.

I think that'll be the case for pretty much anything; someone will need
to hack on migration scripts for at least parts of any migration most
