Proposed change: replace "provide easy access to" with "automatically
install", else nothing that downloads files is a Free Software
distribution.  For example, OpenBSD provides easy access to Non-Free
Software, so should be Non-Free.

Note also that Debian GNU/Hurd should be a Free Software Distribution,
even if Debian GNU/Linux is not yet.  I'm not sure of the status of
the NetBSD and kFreeBSD flavours and I've not checked this in detail.

Hope that helps,
