[Vrms-devel] Bug#742854: vrms should hook into APT to warn users about installing non-free packages

Package: vrms
Version: 1.16
Severity: wishlist

Inspired by the current discussions on -vote, I'd like to suggest that 
vrms installs an APT hook to warn users when installing contrib or 
non-free packages.

To be able to do that vrms should probably be able to give information 
about one or more specific packages passed on the command line.

Kind regards,
