1. Remove non-free files. (I'm not tested)
2. Relicense non-free license to DFSG-Free license.(E.g GNU GPL, BSD License, etc...) NOTE! This action is very hard. (You *MUST* obtain permission to copyright holders)
3. Move to non-free. (This packeage depending any packeages: Move to contirb)
4. Remove to archive.

Closes: 688020
 snack ( unstable; urgency=low
   * Acknowledge NMU and include patch by Michael Karcher to fix CVE-2012-6303
     to the main package development.
   * Switched to the 3.0 (quilt) source package format.
   * Renamed the binary packages to tcl-snack, tcl-snack-dev, tcl-snack-doc
     to comply the Debian Tcl/Tk policy.
   * Removed non-free source files jkFormatMP3.c and jkFormatMP3.h, and
     binary without source snack.mcp.sit.hqx. Also, documented the license
     for ffa.c, shape.c, snackDecls.h, snackStubInit.c, snackStubLib.c and
     a few other files in debian/copyright (closes: #688020).
   * Switched to an alternative upstream with reimplemented MP3 support via
     libmpg123. This helps to retain MP3 support while dropping the non-free
     source files jkFormatMP3.c and jkFormatMP3.h which implemented MP3
     support internally. Note that after that one has to run
     [package require snackmpg] to enable MP3.
   * Removed unneeded headers from the tcl-snack-dev binary package.
   * Bumped debhelper compatibility version to 8.
   * Bumped standards version to 3.9.4.
