a decision was made for this to be an ethical (Libre) project, and for that
to actually mean what it says, rather than just use the word in a way that
leaves us open to accusations of being "Fake Libre" by people familiar with
the FSF and with the GNU project.

whether i *like* the inconvenience and the hassle that results from following
those ethical guidelines is an entirely different conversation! :)

yeh, this, it is a "grey area".  i can see the sense in it, with people
online - exclusively on github rather than just typing "libre-soc" into a wider
search engine - it would be good to at least have something that points them
