Re: what free software is about/and supporting nonfree?, maybe add to clause 5?

Free software is about the sharing of that freedom

So there is nothing wrong with urging people to reconsider if non-free is really what they want

(therefore my idea to add that to clause5)

We shouldn't even be supporting non-free by hosting it, yet we do

So it is a good idea to mention to people they should reconsider if there are other ways of getting a free alternative than putting non-free into the repository.

If you support hosting of non-free you support putting people in jail.
but debian users are nice people apparently, got a non-free repos :-)

A one-liner mention that the person wanting their non-free uploaded should reconsider would be a good thing
due to it not being optimal with a large non-free repos as I said.
