Dear Karl, dear all,

floatflt seems to be unfree, the copying conditions as laid out in
flotflt.ins say:
  %  user(s) of your file(s).  You may freely distribute the
  %  files floatflt.dtx and floatflt.ins, provided: 1. You do not
  %  take money for the distribution or use of these files except
  %  for a nominal charge for diskettes and postage; and 2. You
  %  always distribute `floatflt.dtx' and `floatflt.ins' together
  %  at the same time. 

I guess we have to remove them from the distributions (and from the
Debian packages).

Best wishes

CONG (n.)
Strange-shaped metal utensil found at the back of the saucepan
cupboard. Many authorities believe that congs provide conclusive proof
of the existence of a now extinct form of yellow vegetable which the
Victorians used to boil mercilessly.
