Note that GNU's non-recommendation of Debian is quite old, and is due to
the fact that Debian maintains the non-free and contrib portions of its
archive. (Even though Debian's position has always been that non-free
and contrib are not part of Debian proper.)
Ironically, non-free is now where a lot of GFDLed document will end up.
