Rationale

The word "libre" is in danger of being diluted which will eliminate its advantages:

  • disambiguates "free as in freedom" from "free as in beer"
  • it is used extensively in free/libre and open source software and free/libre and open knowledge contexts to emphasise the freedom perspective.

This is not intended as a "fork".
