non-free does have its own non-free autobuilders. You may want to get in
touch with aba (Andreas Barth, firstname.lastname@example.org), he's maintaining the
non-free and experimantal build-daemons.

You upload packages for non-free the excately same way as you do it for
main - just upload them and they will be autobuilt.

 For the inital build, you have to tell aba with a signed mail that
your packages license terms do allow resp. do not permit beeing
autobuilt, and that you will immediately tell him if this changes in the
future. Then, he puts your package into the whitelist and from then on,
your package will be automagically autobuilt
