I'm aware that Debian does this now. While I don't think that all (or even
most) Debian supporters are ultra-orthodox free-software fanatics I
certainly believe the core that made that decision is.
You should have added that that decision was quite controversial in the
Debian community.
But Debian is such an 'institution' that they can afford to go against the
mainstream, I don't think Mageia can afford that, certainly not at this
(and personally I don't see the point)
