s/I dislike/is not free software/ [*]
It's not a mater of taste. Having Poppy requiring a non-free component,
even indirectly (ie: the Oracle JVM that CassandraDB needs), makes it
Ensuring we really only accept free software is not a bikeshed color
discussion, it is really important. And that's the same topic as using
non-free CDN solution (see below).

Yeah, correct: open core. So we're discussing the freeness of software
we can accept. That's right on topic to me. Its dependencies, being
remote (ie: commercial CDNs) *OR* local (CassandraDB, and therefore the
Oracle JVM) are both non-free. And in fact, local dependencies which
someone would actually need to install on his computer, are even more
important than the remote ones.
