  well, reread the GR more carefully. It does not says non-free is part
of debian, but: debian will not drop non-free support.

  but non-free is NOT part of the Debian OS. this is what I've learned
when I was in NM, also what is stated in many Fouding Documents. So
basically Debian /OS/ does not contains non-free software at-all. The
Debian /community/ provides some kind of support (BTS, mirrors/archive,
packaging) to some non free softwares which are released at the same
time as the Stable suite of Debian /OS/ but not /in/ Debian OS.

  I think you misread my mail that was only reminding that fact. I don't
want to drop non-free support at all !
