Re: GR to remove the support for non-free packages

Hi All,

What about the packages which are in non-free only because of the 
country-specific (usually US) patent restrictions?
They can be used/distributed freely in almost the whole world except
of single countries, and do not contradict the DFSG.
This category includes such important things like RSA dependent cryptographic
packages, software for compressed GIFs and MP3 encoders...
