Thanks for the clarification.  As I see it now the only non-free code
remaining in the source is psipred.  Since you said that these 3rdparty
plugins are optional I can remove that code from the upstream source
and upload UGENE to Debian main (formerly it was in non-free).  This
would be a really big step forward and would not be possible without
your help.

Unfortunately there is this runtime issue which I have sent with the

   More issues about Ugene (Was: Third party code inside Ugene)

and which for mysterious reasons did not even made it into the list
archive.  Could you please confirm that you received this mail including
the two screenshot images?  If not I'll resent from a different mail

Kind regards and thanks again for your help
