Hmm, I can only think about packages that we have
a special permission to redistribute for:
virtualbox-additions in Community and (I may be totally wrong here)
flashplayer in Extra), don't know about others.
(BTW both packages' "source" and binary are almost the same)
What I don't know if redistribution from out site covers our mirrors too.
