I'd just like to point out that hydra.gnu.org does *NOT* use non-free
javascript. I can assure you that everything is free software.
LibreJS just needs to be told so using a very specific metadata
format.  I really do not like that LibreJS tells users that they are
running non-free code and encourages them to complain to site admins
about it when really LibreJS doesn't know anything. I wish LibreJS
would change the messaging but that seems unlikely.

Part of my old job at the FSF was making sure LibreJS didn't complain
about things on FSF-run sites.  It took a lot of time to do and I
don't think it was ever worth the effort.  I haven't used LibreJS in
years and probably never will again.
