If we endorse anything other than gNewSense, we would be sending the message
that distros with proprietary software and binary blobs are "better" than
fully free distros.

It seems that Nov 30th is the business release date, and January 30th is the
general release date.

I'm going to be away travelling from Nov 16th to Dec 4th, so I won't be able
to work on this (or maybe I can do a little).  Maybe we should aim for a PR
on Nov 30th, and something bigger for Jan 30th.
