If you apt-cache show vrms, you will see the notice explaining that RMS
does not actually hold the same views on freedom as Debian, and that the
software defaults to the DFSG in cases of difference of opinion.
Similarly for the man page of vrms.

In any case, it seems that Dmitry has now decided not to package the
xlennart. If nobody else is willing to package it, I would recommend
that this bug be closed. If someone else is willing to package it, then
the bug ownership should be changed to reflect this.
