Ok, sorry for that :)
However, I still believe that censorship is a BadThing©, and everyone should be
given the chance to speak. But, well, I don't know what happened with Sven...
and I don't even want to touch the topic.

I know.

And that's why my proposal of (slowly) splitting to non-free.org is still
there. debian-multimedia.org has had a great success, and is widely used, even
if not mentioned in debian.org. That's however mentioned in community forums,
mailing lists, usenet newsgroups, $community. That's what I hope for a
"non-free.org" if we start using it.

That is, if any DD could maintain that, obviously.
