Pages on are just HTML, with SSI. And we have the capability to
host pages in other layouts on when there is a good reason to. 

We seem to be going in circles at this point, and you've heard my
thoughts, so I'll wait to see what you come up with. :) I think that if
you come up with a concise, attractive way to introduce the definition
of free software, then we would really like to host that on or, and point people toward it, and I hope you will give us the
opportunity to do that. I also think adoption of the label would benefit
significantly from direct connection with the organization that already
maintains a very widely used definition of free software.
