Non-free IETF RFC/I-Ds in source packages (was: Re: Are source packages required to be DFSG-free?)

Bug #390664 inspired me to look in source packages for IETF RFC/I-D's
too, and the situation seem to be more problematic.  I've put a list
of packages in testing (as of a few days ago, my mirror is slow) that
appear to contain IETF RFC or I-D's at:


There are certainly false positives in that list (I know of some), and
some have already been reported.  The regexp I used was:

    -e rfc[0-9]+\.txt \
    -e draft-.*[0-9][0-9]\.txt \

But still, that's 73 source packages.

I will try to go through them and report bugs, but I could use help in
analysing the packages for false positives.  Perhaps a page on
wiki.debian.org could be used to co-ordinate this.
