Ok, i understand, but still it is DFSG compliant no ? why then
penalize it and move it away from main into some server that will
matbe not be mirrored everywhere ?

What is the true need to remove non-free, apart from the political
one, that is ?

and what about all the debian developper who maintain non-free or
contrib packages ? Will the upload and such process be complicated by
the new setup ? Will the non-free maintainer become second zone debian
developpers ?
