Re: Debtags facet for classification non-free packages

Thanks for the response and comments.

In my original proposal it would be marked by no-source,
in this probably with :change. Yes, it should be mentioned in description.

if those concern use (i.e. use is not dfsg free), then use :use,

Restrictions of unrelated software could be done by :dist, when the 
restrictions would be on software distributed with it, and :use when the 
unrelated sw is restricted where the sw runs.

I understand this opinion, but for example GFDL documentation was
"free enough" a couple of months ago, and now it is in the same category
as for example rar, only because the majority opinion changes. And in contrib,
there is among free sw depending on nonfree even really nonfree flashplugin.
Everyone can have his/her own opinion, what is free enough for him/her.
