As stated by some on IRC I could just have dropped in the repos and be
done with it. No one would have complained I guess. But to be fair, I

it I will definatly not package the proprietary stoftware in our repos.
And thanks to the constructive input I will make sure it is obvious we
have the rights for redistribution. That was also mostly my goal, get
input if I'm missing something or overlooked something before bringing
