The policy decision's at http://people.debian.org/~ajt/sarge_rc_policy.txt:

] Code in main and contrib must meet the DFSG, both in .debs and
] in the source (including the .orig.tar.gz)
] Documentation in main and contrib must be freely distributable,
] and wherever possible should be under a DFSG-free license. This
] will likely become a requirement post-sarge.
