Is vrms really still a Virtual Richard M. Stallman?

Hey everyone,

I don't know whether to file a bug report or just laugh my head off.

netsnipe@espresso:~% vrms
              Non-free packages installed on espresso
doc-linux-nonfree-text    Linux HOWTOs in ASCII format (non-free)
doc-rfc-std               Standard RFCs

Now we all know Richard M. Stallman's position on the GFDL, but I find
it extremely ironic that his virtual persona in Debian now discriminates
against his packages which uses a license his real self would approve. 

So is vrms now up for a name change before the real RMS decides to sue
us for misrepresenting him! = ) 


Nominations are now open.
