As explained months ago in
comparing ftp.debian.org with ftp.ibiblio.org is more accurate, as
the debian.org and gnu.org name policies are different. The main
GNU ftp server also distributes non-free software.
ftp.gnu.org does not distribute non-free software.

No more than GNU develops non-free software because some of its
developers also support non-free software. That is, not at all.
GNU doesn't develop non-free software. Nor does GNU support non-free
software. That some contributors send patches for that things work
with non-free software does not mean that GNU supports or develops
Please stop tossing mud at the FSF and the GNU project with these
false and absurd accusations.
