And both of you just miss the point.
i don't think so (for my part, that is).
We are NOT talking about udebs.
We are NOT talking about whatever debian-cd creates.
We are talking about the installer images. Those that "fall out of the
exactely, which, as i said, have non-free parts included in some
(for system where the nic needs firmware, the netboot initrd already
needs to contain it in order to work).
But the link to debian-cd created images answers the question in a
different way: It won't have installer images in contrib/non-free. The
only non-free stuff we would be likely to add - is added by debian-cd in
an extra set of cd images.
for derivatives that choose to support users with d-i+non-free-udebs
images, they can today store them in
with your proposal, it's effectively impossible for derivatives to store
their d-i+non-free-udebs images in a reasonable location within the archive.
therefore my request to account for non-free within the archive for the
new installer images location *eventhough* official debian does not yet
or ever use it.
