Amen! _But_ different countries = different laws, if the distro, resp.
distros repository is only for a special country, for some countries it
wouldn't matter.

I often wanted to become a DEB and ARCH packager, but I never ever will
become a lawyer, so respect to the people who build official packages
for DEB distros and Arch. I decided to package not anything for an
official repository. I'm not a coward, I had a previous conviction for
being a pacifist. However, fighting against war is easier than fighting
against (IOW ignoring) international patent laws.
