Hi Stefano,

I explained in my GR proposition what led me to conclude that not everything in
the original archives distributed usptream is a source for Debian. Let's take a
non-free RFC for example, that is not distributed in a binary package and is
not touched at build time. Why do you think it is part of the source of the
Debian operating system?

Have a nice day,
