Right. But if the application is in an official, supported repository
for given distro, it is better for the author to point to such
repository as its quality should be higher than some other, third party.
Unless the third party provides some feature which is not available in
official version, but well, it is a tradeoff here. It is up to
installation file author to balance what he thinks is better.
