As far as I know, we're happy to accept non-free stuff in pristine .orig.tar.gz's as long as it's not used. If you don't have a pristine .orig.tar.gz anyway, then it's silly to include unused non-free stuff, but it's not cause for a REJECT. > In other words, invariant sections (small I, small S) are not DFSG-free, > but the removal of invariant sections from a work may be sufficient to > render it DSFG-free. Assuming that's allowed by the license of course. As far as I'm aware, it's quite okay to do this in either the .diff.gz or debian/rules, though.
