I know. But http://www.debian.org/intro/free use the wording
Part of it may be my own fault. When discussing freeing the
software with them last fall, I directed them to
http://www.debian.org/intro/free instead of directly to
> If you want to prevent proprietary derived works, GPL works great.
I informed them of that too. But while writing my email to them,
I found it irritating that our first `what's free' web page
didn't advocate that directly.
Does everyone agree that http://www.debian.org/intro/free should
be changed? At least, I'd change `commercial software' to
`closed-source software' or `proprietary software'. If there are
no objections, I can fill a bug report against www.debian.org
