I might be wrong, but I thought that the "Thou Shalt Not Advocate
Proprietary Software" rule is because of the rules for GNU Projects --
not because of the FSF. They are two different organisations for
different purposes.
Previously, I believed to have read these rules in the "Information for
Maintainers of GNU Software" [0] but could not find it any more.
