>>>   I am very aware of the meaning "free" here. Mauku was uploaded into the free section because there was (is) no non-free repository in Extras. However, the community insisted to close all external repositories and use Extras instead (done that). In addition, Ovi Store was not (is not, it is still beta) available for distribution channel.

Back in the days when Canola source code was not available I used to
generate the binary packages using -b option of dpkg-buildpackage(1).
It will then generate only binary files (.deb) and the proper .changes

To upload to extras non-free, you must use dput and edit /etc/dput.cf
accordingly, as described in

Don't know the current status of the non-free queue for Fremantle. It
used to work back in the days of Gregale/Bora/Chinook/Diablo.
