The CTAN team is slowly removing the nonfree/ tree, since (while it
seemed a good idea at the time) we find we can't manage it properly.
(free/nonfree distinctions are now supported by the catalogue, alone.)

i have therefore taken this opportunity to move FrenchPro to the main
tree, at language/french/frenchpro

users may browse the new version at
