You are correct. My error, since I didn't check the definition of
contrib. So long as it's not a package, the dependance on the external
website is ok. I thought any external dependances made it non-main.
But it's GPL, so it's DFSG compliant 100%.
Ok, it'l be in main then. Are there plans to make the new science
subsection soon? This would fit in there nicely.
