During the review with my mentor Anssi of one of the packages I'm working
on, the question came up what the appropriate repository for a package is
that's both non-free (open source but not a FOSS license) and tainted
(contains sw. that is covered by patents in some parts of the world).

Should a non-free+tainted package go in tainted, i.e. is the tainted repo
for all tainted packages, both free and non-free


should it go into non-free, i.e. non-free is for both unencumbered and
tainted packages


do we need a separate tainted+non-free repository just like plf has?
