I have added a few paragraphs in the FAQ itself. I hope nobody minds. Also, I apologize for the likely English mistakes in those additions!

Okay the initiators of this site here are [[User:Benjamin Mako Hill|Benjamin Mako Hill]] and [[User:Erik Möller|Erik Möller]]. It's important to know where this project stands. If it was created with the ideas of wikimedia and FSF in mind, why not go ahead and write it in the FAQ? <small>'' -- The previous unsigned comment was made by [[User:Yamavu|Yamavu]] 01:15, 31 January 2009 ([http://freedomdefined.org/index.php?title=Talk%3AFAQ&diff=5617&oldid=5573 verify])''</small>

: Hello, Yamavu. Currently I am the most active administrator here, but I am focused on technical maintenance (vandalisms, spam, test edits...) Nevertheless, the questions you raise do require the attention of the project founders and policy makers.

== How does the Definition compare with the Debian Free Software Guidelines? ==
 
 
 
The Debian project [in]famously takes freedom very seriously, and thus the [http://www.debian.org/social_contract#guidelines|Debian Free Software Guidelines] are quite strict.
 
 
 
How does the DFCW relate to the DFSG? Is it more strict, less strict, or incomparable? In other words: is a DFCW-free work necessarily DFSG-free, is a DFSG-free work necessarily DFCW-free, or are things more complicated (and if so, how)?
