Are source packages required to be DFSG-free? (was: Re: New bugs filed regarding non-free IETF RFC/I-Ds)
There is some discussion in one of the bug reports:
(please read it first)
The problem is essentially, if I understood it correctly, whether
Debian source packages [in main] must be DFSG-free or not, or whether
it is sufficient that Debian binary packages [in main] must be
DFSG-free and that the source package is "legally distributable".
I'm not sure what the policy is here. I thought the Debian Policy was
that source packages must be DFSG-free too, but I can't find a precise
quotation in the Debian Policy Manual and point to it.
