1. I think it should work something like this:
2. Non free package found
3. Bug filed against package in gnewsense
3b. optional bug filed with debian if its still relevant to them.
4a. builder changed to not build/remove the package
4b. builder changed to edit package to free it.
5. bug marked fixed.
