Just a thought:

gNewSense is based on Debian too, and it seems to do much much more work than
just drop the nonfree repos (same for Trisquel with its base distro ubun7u). I
don't know the details, but I do wonder whether just dropping repos and using a
libre kernel is enough. Maybe it is, and then I wonder why gNewSense does all
that other work. If that work is needed, you people should probably do
the same thing...

Or just give Trisquel to your users, which is a great stable distro and I think
it's an excellent default for new people joining the free software community
and taking the GNU path.
