FS#926 - [python-biopython]: using vague "freely" term in description

community/python-biopython 1.69-1
    Freely available Python tools for computational molecular biology


Don’t use “freely available software” as a synonym for “free software.” The terms are not equivalent. Software is “freely available” if anyone can easily get a copy. “Free software” is defined in terms of the freedom of users that have a copy of it. These are answers to different questions.
