1. Everyone is, more or less, free to do whatever they wish.
2. GNOME will only host and endorse free software.

I don't think we need to get into the free software vs. open source
debate here. The main point where they differ is not whether any given
code *on the Internet* is free/open (and that's the important part
here), but whether certain conditions, such as Tivoization, may turn
the code into non-free/closed.
