If this is true and ELPA has the same strict copyright restrictions as
the Emacs core, then IMO we're losing a significant portion of the
benefit of ELPA.

There are many packages which will never secure sufficient copyright
permissions to be included into Emacs.  Such packages were previously
available through ELPA.  Where can these packages live now?

Would it make sense to setup a second ELPA repository for non-FSF

Forgive me if this issue has already been settled in a previous
conversation which I've missed.
