some GPU requires non-free software for 3D acceleration; but i
do not know of any which can not run a graphical environment of
a fully libre system

i dont believe that any freedom issue is addressed by this
proposal - there are definitely other good reasons to re-write
the FSD - i have suggested several times over the years, that
it should get a make-over, to appear more like a "modern-web"
downloads website - people would be more familiar with the
typical "app-store" presentation - that would be an improvement;
but that could be accomplished with the wiki remaining in place
under-the-hood, for those who wish to edit it

a wiki is not the ideal software for this purpose; but it has
the nice property of simple, public, collaborative editing, and
is familiar to anyone who has edited a wiki before, and easy
to learn buy anyone else - git of course has the former
property; but is not as familiar to, nor easy to use by, people
who are not programmers
