Too bad.  We should avoid recommending use of repology.org.
(This doesn't imply actively discouraging people from using it.
There is no need to go THAT far.)

If repology.el is a simple interface to repology.org,
we should not recommend repology.el.  Unless we can find a way
to fix the problem of showing nonfree packages.
