Phew, the Libre page is now live! Thanks for all your help, folks.

Matt: Thanks for your grammatical fixes and your suggestion to sort out the footnotes. I moved some non-citation material out of the footnotes and into the body.

Pharos: Thanks for the tip! I knew of the Gratis versus Libre page, but I used the Alternative Terms for Free Software page to add some extra content at the last minute.

Hopefully it'll stick around, grow and be a useful contribution to Wikipedia :)

Thanks Richard!

Yes, indeed, you may want to check out the discussion pages on those articles and see if this topic has come up before about creating a new page outright for "Libre".

You could further help your case by seeing if there is any content that would not fit appropriately on these two articles (or any other for that matter) but would make sense to be posted on a "Libre" article.

If you find this to be the case, I'd even recommend adding an explanation and links to the "Discussion" page.

You also might want to keep these articles in mind:

Thanks,
