non-free is be correct, yes.

you need a sponsor to check, rebuild, sign and upload your package to
the debian archive. this can either be requested from one of the debian
developers which are in the debian games team, or, on
debian-mentors@lists.debian.org which is the general list about package
upload requests.

(note that i am not part of the debian games team, so my personal
opinion is not reflecting the teams opinion in any way and may differ
from it.)

assumed that the whole components of the game are properly
redistributable, i would welcome a package containing everything, and
not just an installer. from the debian user point of view, i expect to
have everything ready when i have installed the package, and not
requiring other downloads.

where do i find the sources for it excately (sources are the
orig.tar.gz, .dsc and diff.gz files)?
