Debian and its clones The Debian project will release the new stable version of debian - Debian 6.0 "Squeeze" - with a completely free Linux kernel. Binary-only firmware and other non-free kernel components will only be available via the non-free repositories and the project is actively encouraging vendors that have not done so already to release their firmware in a form compatible with the Debian Free Software Guidelines.

When I read the teaser, I thought "is Debian 'big' enough to be producing a 'Debian Free Software Guidelines' that vendors are supposed to follow?". It still holds in light of your comment.
