Ok,

but there's one thing that I don't understand. If a soft is gpl that uses a 
non-free soft, doesn't go to contrib?

My question is about a plugin that has in the source the non-free lib but 
itself is gpl, documented all in the License file. and all is a package, has 
to go to non-free? Or the maintainer has to separate in two packages, the 
non-free and the contrib part?

Regards,

Leo
