That was sad news, indeed.  Welcome aboard!

Are your .debs available for the general public?  Would you like to make
them available, be it under say freed-ebian (alongside freed-ora,
building deblobbed kernels as similar as possible to those of distros)
or as part of Ali Gündüz's Freedom Shoppe project (most recent kernels
for distros)?

That's an FSFLA in-joke.  Our “official language” is portuñol, the
language you get when a Portuguese-speaker pretends to speak Spanish, or
vice-versa.  We use it to avoid favoring any of the two languages spoken
in most of Latin America.

Thanks for your concern.
