sorry that I completely missed this at the time I was CCed.
The files were made by Andreas Tille, and their inclusion was discussed in the
Andreas can probably give more details, but following URLs are relevant to the
generation of the graphes.
I think that the PDFs linked in devel/debian-med/News/2009/20090214.wml are
well understandable without translation. Therefore, there should be no need
for a makefile.
For the source, if it is still available, why not committing the data and the
script that produces the PDF. (Althouth of course the real source would be a
snapshot of the UDD at the time, and the source of that UDD snapshot would be…
complex.) On the other hand, if the source is not available anymore, in my
understanding it does not make the files non-free.
Have a nice day,
