This makes me doubt if Guix really respects FSF FSDG.  If they cannot
respect free software licenses, maybe they include non-free software.
That is why I proposed in 2019 that approved distros do not audit
themselves for freedom.  A third party should.  But Donald Robertson has
delayed with different excuses over time.  John Sullivan also decided to
overlook this.  They just bounced it back on me, instead of taking
action as FSF should do.  I wonder why they have so much decision power
in FSF and not the board.
