Bug#902880: ngspice: move from non-free to main section

Matsievskiy S.V.
Package: ngspice
Version: ngspice
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

According to COPYING file from ngspice (version 28), its components are
distributed under following licences: GPL, LGPL, CC-BY-SA v4.0, BSD, public
domain. All of these are listed as compatible to DFSG
(https://wiki.debian.org/DFSGLicenses). Therefore I think that it's appropriate
to move ngspice from non-free to main section.

this change is pending due the upload of 28-1 on 16 Jun 2018 to NEW.

So if the ftpmaster are happy with prepared package ngspice will be
moving along with new packages to main.
