Bug#1403: non-free and contrib directories have no Packages files

Package: ftp site
Version: mirrored at around 0100 GMT on the 20th of September.

The non-free and contrib directories on the FTP site do not contain a
Packages file.  This means that you can't use dselect to install the
packages there.

A README should be provided saying that the Packages files in these
directories not the same as each other, nor as the one in the main
distribution, and that a user wanting to install packages from all
three areas should go through the full dselect
[A]ccess/[U]pdate/[S]elect/[I]install for each area.
