I hope you don’t seriously think GPL software is not “truly free”.
I agree with the sentiment that copyleft licenses are not truly free, but
only in the sense "you are free to do what you want, but only my way".
This is probably a minority view in the free software community, but not
one that you should dismiss so easily.
As for my opinion, the more licenses the user can choose, the freeer and
the better and I thus support keeping the current GPL 2 or higher license.
In fact I would prefer to go to a less restrictive license, but that is
probably not worth the fight.
