Until/unless our Social Contract changes, that's what we've promised to do!

I passionately support freedom.  I care about our users.  For what it's worth,
I can't remember any specific instance where I personally felt those were 
in conflict.

My answer to a nearly identical question from Jordi Mallach during the campaign
last year still reflects my thoughts on this pretty well:


If it matters, "non-free" appears in sources.list on many fewer of my systems
than it did a year ago.  That feels like progress to me, but I haven't looked 
recently at what's still in non-free and so I don't have any personal opinion 
about how "important" it might still seem to our users.
