Whoops nevermind. I meant to say that not all Open Souce is Libre
Software and you already show that. The rest still stands, I think.

Correction: Part of Libre Software should also be outside of Open Source

Hey,

I noticed you applied to be the aerc maintainer and decided to read over
some of your blog posts. In your post titled "Don't call it Free
Software"[1], you state the following with a complimenting diagram:

> If by “free software” you mean freeware, then it is [...]

However, this is rather explicitly not (necessarily) the case, as
mentioned in the GNU page you link as well as their clarifiaction[3].

[PATCH sourcehut.org v2] Switch consultancy page to Markdown 21 days ago

From Steven Guikal to ~sircmpwn/sr.ht-dev

This introduces a "custom" layout which allows for control of styling
with the "class" frontmatter parameter.

Gah, fixed a tiny bug (just adds a newline between definitions) but
didn't commit. Apologies.

Potentially important differences include the title no longer containing
a non-breaking space between "free" and "software" as well as links in
the content having different "rel" attributes (I haven't looked at the
differences for this one). Screenshots of old/new page below:
