Re: Another one... _):


	What is the proper thing to do with a package which is free,
 but whose capabilities would be impaired (some would say seriously
 impaired) unless a package from the non-free distribution is also
 installed? (I am talking about LaTeX2HTML and netpbm; LaTeX2HTML runs
 latex on snippets of the origina that can't be translated into HTML,
 and then converts the dvi file to ps which it converts to xbm and
 then to a gif file, inlined in the final product).

	Does this mean that LaTeX2HTML should be moved to non-free as
 well? The current solution is to merely recommend netpbm, even though
 this is non-free.
