  Debian Will Remain 100% Free Software

  We promise to keep the Debian GNU/Linux Distribution entirely free
  software. As there are many definitions of free software, we include the
  guidelines we use to determine if software is "free" below. We will
  support our users who develop and run non-free software on Debian, but
  we will never make the system depend on an item of non-free software.

What part of "Free Software" don't you understand?

If we distribute it, it's software.

If it's not software (or willing to be treated as such), it's not our
mission to distribute it.
