Right, so some developers may choose to license their apps
or plugin frameworks liberally to allow proprietary plugins.
We don't need a morality debate on the existence of those
plugins on this list (please). But I think most would agree
that our servers shouldn't host non-free software.

It's a simple one-liner: "GNOME only hosts free software on" It's worth adding.
