From the policy manual: 2.2.2 The contrib section Every package in contrib and non-US/contrib must comply with the DFSG. In addition, the packages in contrib and non-US/contrib * must not be so buggy that we refuse to support them, and * must meet all policy requirements presented in this manual. Furthermore, packages in contrib must not require a package in a non-US section for compilation or execution. Examples of packages which would be included in contrib or non-US/contrib are: * free packages which require contrib, non-free packages or packages which are not in our archive at all for compilation or execution, and * wrapper packages or other sorts of free accessories for non-free programs. "wrapper" is even in the name. It's only useful function is to facilitate the use of a non-free program.
Replying to myself here. I just read some newer messages in the thread. I retract my statement, as I was unaware of free drivers that could be used in conjunction with ndiswrapper. -Roberto Sanchez
