So what is and isnt Gnome. Gnome isnt a clear defined project its an 
amorphous blob. At best you could assign a '%age gnomeness' to any given
point in the cloud of projects.

So you draw a box around the core stuff and call it Gnome and after a bit 
of a fight miguel says 'the line is here' and everyone stops bitching. The
rest is effectively gnome-contrib and will include non free stuff. You can
decide not to manage contrib in which case it just looks like gnome
is disorganised.

GnomeHack is nonfree under strict GPL terms. GnomeScott depends upon free
but not open source 3rd party games that it plays.
