Do you believe that this is non-free because of philosophical reasons,
or because DFSG 3 says so? I recognise that this is what DFSG 3 appears
to claim, but on re-reading the debian-private thread which shaped the
social contract I'm becoming increasingly convinced that that's not its
intention. I'd be interested to hear arguments for why DFSG 3 /should/
mean what it appears to mean.
