-Replicant is a distribution of Android that is 100% Free Software.
+Replicant is a fully free Android distribution running on several devices.
+It is based on CyanogenMod and thus on the Android Open Source Project.
-Most of Android is licensed freely under the Apache License 2.0. The Linux core is mostly Free Software under the GPLv2. However, there are numerous components of the default software stack on the devices that are proprietary software. Most notably, nearly any component that touches the hardware directly is proprietary software.
+Android includes software from various sources, released under different free software licenses.
+Replicant attempts to remove or replace any non-free component (running on the main CPU) that is needed by Android, whenever this is possible.
-We are not experts in embedded devices; we are just enthusiastic hackers that are giving a try.
-Note: As for now, Replicant may include components for which the license is not clear. See the reports on CyanogenMod issue tracker:
-* <http://code.google.com/p/cyanogenmod/issues/detail?id=3357>

+We are not experts in embedded devices, just a couple enthusiastic hackers that are giving a try.
Replicant is based on CyanogenMod <http://www.cyanogenmod.com/> which is based on the Android Open Source Project <http://www.android.com/>.
-Replicant vendor files are a modified version of CyanogenMod vendor files.
-Since replicant uses code from CyanogenMod, which uses code from AOSP, the list of contributors must be long.
-There is a list of people who contribute(d) to Replicant on <http://trac.osuosl.org/trac/replicant/wiki/People>. Note that this list is not exhaustive.
+The full list of contributors to the Replicant code base must be very long since it is based on CyanogenMod and AOSP, which are both using third party projects.
+However, a (non-exhaustive) list of people who specifically contribute(d) to Replicant is available at: <http://redmine.replicant.us/projects/replicant/wiki/People>
