Linux-libre project meets rocky reception

Jeff and Bruce, sorry about the misinformation, my sentence didn't come out quite right. I heard, and I thought it was from you (among others), that gNewSense developers had tried submitting patches upstream, and kernel developers reactions confirmed patches to remove non-Free bits had been submitted before. I may have connected the dots that shouldn't be connected, when I assumed gNewSense had been behind that.

As for mentioning BLAG, it was there because IIRC I had got some of the reports in the form of comments from you, not that you had gone upstream yourself. But I realize I wrote something else. Sorry, mea culpa :-(
