Hi MJ,

The point of my question is to give _context_. Which of the list are
non-free and as a consequence wouldn't get software into main Debian's
repositories. So are the ones that in an hypothetical Debian membership
to OSI would need to be changed so that membership gets effective.
That's what I understand from Josselin's email from:

"I’m very worried to see Debian’s name used
to condone licenses we would not accept."

Which are those licenses?
