Yes, but the page clearly states:

"If you maintain a distibution that follows the Free System
Distribution Guidelines and would like to be listed here, please write
to <address@hidden>"

If this is wrong then it should be corrected.

Since version 14.2 we are not using the GNU linux-libre kernel any more.
We are using Debian's de-blobbing mechanism instead, like it is stated
at [1] and technically explained in detail at [2]

I am not sure what you mean by "references to licenses".

Our bug tracking system was at Since Gna services were shut
down recently we haven't a bug tracking system anymore (we also lost
our mailing list). Of course, there is still the possibility to report
bugs via mail. However, the need of a bug tracking system isn't a
requirement as far as the FSDG goes.
