Contrib on official CD


It's been troubling me that we ship 'contrib' .deb's on the
official CD that are dependant on 'non-free' .deb's we don't

Obviously, this is stupid.

My proposal:

The official CD's should not include 'contrib' .deb's - but
should include 'contrib' source packages.

The reason: we include 'contrib' source because it could
potentially be modified to not depend on 'non-free' stuff, or
routines could be cut-and-pasted into other free software.

How's that?
