That's what I call bad timing.  Getting the non-free GR out in the middle of
the GFDL fiasco crisis?   So far, it looks like we will have to need to
shunt all GFDL docs to non-free (not to mention other standards, RFCs,
etc)...  so how can one vote for non-free to be gone entirely?

I suggest someone writes a remove-non-free proposal that keeps non-free
around _only_ for documentation, but removes all software.  I do not think I
am up to doing this.
