+The social contract of Parabola GNU/Linux is a commitment of the
+distribution with the libre software community in general and its users
+in particular. It is because of this that our social contract will
+always follow the philosophy of free knowledge. All the amendments to
+this social contract must be faithful to the spirit of the [Free
+1. **Parabola GNU/Linux is libre software:** it will follow the [GNU
+ free system distribution
+ so it doesn't include or recommend proprietary software or
+ documentation and it does not provide any type of support for their
+ installation or execution. This includes: proprietary software,
+ binary only firmware or [binary blobs](wp:Binary_blob "wikilink").
+2. **Parabola GNU/Linux and other distributions:** Parabola's objective
+ is to support the free software movement so we only need to compete
+ against nonfree software. Parabola will strive to support other free
+ software projects as best it can and any information from our
+ project will be available for anybody who needs it. That includes
+ our packages and repositories.
+3. **Parabola GNU/Linux and its community:** our community is
+ democratic in its essence, so the community is included whenever
+ there is a need to take a decision. We encourage community
+ participation in the development of the project.
+4. **Parabola GNU/Linux and ArchLinux:** Parabola is the free version
+ of [ArchLinux](http://www.archlinux.org/ "wikilink"). We provide
+ repositories and installation images without any nonfree software.
+ We respect Arch's KISS philosophy (Keep It Simple, Stupid) and its
+ developing process. In that sense, Parabola will always maintain
+ retro compatibility with Arch so as to help free already
+ working installations.
