Thanks for that.  My thoughts exactly, although I had overlooked step 3b.  I wonder whether it would be best for the people that found the suspected non-free to raise the bug report.  If/ when agreed, we would also need to edit the wiki, so that KK's 5 steps are listed on the non-free page (I suggest).

Anybody else got any thoughts?

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.
