Yes the files are still in the Git repository. Please re-read the
above and the git commit.

The *package* does not contain these files. The package (against which
you files the bug) no longer contains the files. The online manual
links to the files (in the git repository - but these are not in the
source of the package),

For example, I could in a package have a html file which points to
http://www.google.co.uk/intl/en_com/images/srpr/logo1w.png the link
does not make the *package* non-free. As long as that package does not
contain the file(s), it is free.

Again I really hope this clarifies why the bug on the package is closed.
