Free Software systems plus the Free Software philosophy[1] is what
Manchester Free Software does.

Manchester Free Software definitely wants to help and do this event. We
can have it at Madlab. Its best to have it at the weekend especially for
people helping out. Anna, can you send me some possible dates that work
for you and I'll get it booked in at Madlab.

We will, at least, mention Debian as Ubuntu is a Debian derivative and
the Debian project structure might interest the participants[2].

On non-free software, we will explain why its bad so the participants
can stay on track to software freedom.
