I would point out that the FSF has rewritten its views as well. For
example, I protested that the FSF's acceptance of invariant sections
contradicted its own reasing in the "why free manuals are important"
document; the result was that the FSF changed the document.
Debian insists that all which it distributes be free, under a single
definition which does not require asking whether a given bit of text
is "technical" or "political". Can you help us find a suitable
definition for that?
