I don't like that; we aren't an operating system. We're a software
project. If we aren't working on some software, then we shouldn't
distribute it.

non-free for Debian makes sense since people want to get all their
software in one place, but GNOME is already a subset of all software.
Debian will provide the non-free stuff to people, we don't need to.

But anyway, until some non-free software appears that wants to be part
of GNOME, we can ignore the issue.
