Two weeks ago I posted a message about my idea. But no response. I will
post it again. I would like to hear something, even when my idea is very
bad ;-)

It's not meaned for Wheezy, but more as a release goal for Jessie.

With regards,

This is what I wrote:

First step could be to move everything from non-free and contrib to a
repository of another organization, let's call it "debian-nonfree" (but
we could also choose a name without "Debian" in it).

I think only Debian DD's and DM's should be welcome as a member of this
organization, so the quality of the packages in the repository is the
same as in Debian.

In the statutes of the organization we could write that the organization
will do what Debian decides.

This should be only a little change, so the goal is not directly to come
on the FSF-free list, only to make steps in this direction and to make
Debian 100% open source.

Further we could move non-free CD's and firmware to a server of that
