begin Aaron T Porter quotation:

Yes, I wonder why that happens? I see nothing in the Woody package
descriptions suggesting packages ssh, mysql-client, or zip still carry
non-free designations, there.
I notice that Woody has moved the pre-merge package listings from
/var/state/apt/lists to /var/lib/apt/lists/ . FHS (2.1 and up)
craziness, it seems: /var/state has dropped out of favour. I haven't
read the rationale for that change, but it seems a pity, since one of
the ongoing themes of the FHS effort has been to get all the
miscellaneous cruft _out_ of the lib directories, leaving them for
object files, libraries, and internal binaries the way the name "lib"
