Mainly about whether or not to promote and advertise non-free software.
As you probably know the FSF and the GNU project have a very strong
opinion about that. Debian takes the approach that offering and
supporting a non-free package archive isn't a real problem. Some people
disagree. (Just compare the very poor support for most of the free
software packages written in the java-language to work out of the box
with free VMs compared to other distributions who strongly supports only
using Free Software. e.g. Red Hat with rhug, naoko and native-eclipse.)

Although it is important to stress these philosophical differences,
don't let that distract you from the immediate problem of what to do
about these compromises of our free software collaboration
infrastructure and checking your machines for things that might not be
as they are supposed to be.
