I do not know now who really said above paragraph, I just wish to make
it clear that I do not speak about what "free software follower should
do or not" and I never spoke about that, the statements on repology.el
were related on what should be put in GNU ELPA, or not, as it does not
align to GNU project purposes.

That people do what they wish to do is none of my business. So I never
said anything ever on what a free software follower should do or not
