Rationale

The word "libre" is in danger of being diluted

see for example thread "[okfn-discuss] Problems of nomenclature" at http://lists.okfn.org/pipermail/okfn-discuss/2012-March/thread.html

Diluting the term 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".
