Virtual Richard M. Stallman

The vrms program will analyze the set of currently-installed packages on a Debian system, and report all of the packages from the non-free tree (and, optionally, from contrib) which are currently installed.

The vrms package is however somewhat misleading since its name suggests it has to do with RMS while it in facts follows the Debian definition of free. For example things under the GFDL are considered non-free by Debian and free by RMS.
