Thank you Francesca. Here are my remarks:
This formulation seems to say that the removal of non-free parts from
Linux is only one of the Squeeze improvements that the FSF welcomes. As
far as I know there are no other improvements welcomed by the FSF, and
if there are this paragraph doesn't give a clue about how to discover them.
Almost two years after Debian 5.0<q>Lenny</q> was released,<a
<q>Squeeze</q> was released on the 6th of February, 2011</a>.
Among other improvements, the completely free
Linux kernel now shipped in Debian has been<a
welcomed by the Free Software Foundation (FSF)</a>.
Saying that a licensing improvement was welcomed by the FSF is also
strange, the FSF itself shipping non-free parts in some software as
"invariant sections". As far as I know the FSF doesn't even have any
plan to change that, while at least Debian acknowledged the non-free
firmware issue as a bug before it was solved.
