The Heimdal package in Debian contains only these files matching the string


The only one that clearly overlaps samba4 is rfc3454.txt.  rfc3492.txt looks
like it will probably also be a problem for the heimdal package.  The others
aren't RFCs at all, I guess.

The only mention of this in the heimdal package changelog is to say that the
upstream source has been repacked to remove non-free RFCs; there's no
mention of whether additional munging was needed to extract the RFC contents
at repack time.
