  Maybe you don't understand that there's a difference between the
Debian project, as an entity consisting of people, and the Debian
operating system, as a collection of software.  The DFSG obviously
applies to Debian-the-OS, not Debian-the-project (since
Debian-the-project also produces stuff not in Debian-the-OS, namely
contrib and non-free packages).

  Or if you do, please be more specific which "Debian" you're
referring to in your future posts.
