Last time I checked, Debian supports the use of non-free software
through our BTS, PTS and mirror system. I don't think that we should
reject links to launchpad based on "it's non-free" - there might be
other, valid reasons, but Debian hasn't yet decided to remove all links
to non-free content. [1]
