Go read the thread again and note how you misrepresent it here.  You
wrote "so no, debian didn't come up with the idea of free software"
(which was, BTW, totally out of place in the thread); do you really
think that is a way of saying that "the social contract was not adopted
until 1997"?

If you think that a GNU document is the raison d'être of Debian, don't
you think that place belongs to the GNU manifesto?  (Note that I don't
think it belongs to any GNU document.)
