In principle that depends on your definition of "free".
However, to the best of my knowledge, all parts of "Sucrose" - the
official core part of Sugar, is free according to the Debian Fre
Software Guidelines (DFSG) which I believe fit the "free" as defined by
Parts of Sugar (the squeak-vm package needed by Etoys) is treated as
"non-free" in Debian but that is not due to licensing issues but rather
the oddity of "source code" being binary so currently unmaintainable by
the Debian security team.
So the short answr is "yes!" :-)
