+These are the <a href="/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html">GNU/Linux</a>
+distributions we know of which only include and only propose free
+software.  They reject non-free applications, non-free programming
+platforms, non-free drivers, or non-free firmware ``blobs''.  If
+by mistake they do include any, they remove it.</p>
-We would especially like to know of other GNU/Linux distributions
-that have a policy not to include, or recommend, non-free software.
-Please contact us about such distros at &lt;address@hidden&gt;.
+If you know of a distribution that may qualify but isn't listed here,
+please ask the distribution's maintainers if they want to follow these
+free software principles.  If they do, and they would like their
+distribution to be listed here, they should write to
+&lt;address@hidden&gt;.  Some distributions are making efforts to move
+toward a completely free system.  We thank them for their on-going
+work to achieve that goal, and hope to list them here some day.
