Why didn't I named it "Free Software" ?
I could put a GNU logo (that GNU cow)... but it has implications, like
from any brand:
Users will start asking for Debian-like freedom or higher standard,
which I cannot provide.

It is mainly about what you advocate open source or free software.
I see no problem in calling your project a free software advocating
project and providing binaries that only carry "mainly" free software.
You don't licence anything, you just distribute things that come with
their own licences that explicitly allow you to do so. Whether you do
that by criteria like "Software that has nice icons" or "Software that
lets you taste freedom in computing" is of no importance.

Imho it is freedom for users and not openness of code that need to be
advocated.

I guess you do not understand the difference between promoting open
source and promoting free software. Neither do you understand the
implications of that. I suggest you re-read the mails that preceed mine
on this thread. I have one more link for you:
https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/open-source-misses-the-point.html

Perhaps when you understand the difference, we could be able to help you
promote your project.


indeed!
