I think there are probably *some* gNewSense users and developers who
would be using debian if FSF linked to us too (and we threw more
people at the kernel firmware blob problems?).
I don't know whether there are *enough* for others to think it worth the
effort. I didn't find an obvious measurement of gNewSense user or
contributor numbers, let alone any way to see if the numbers increased
after any particular FSF marketing activity (such as gnu.org/fry fr.ex).
Hope that explains,
