I just noticed that there is google-earth in our repos. I am not an expert in 
such things, but distributing such software does not seem to be allowed. The 
license says:

You agree that you will not, and will not allow any third party to, (i) copy, 
sell, license, distribute, transfer, modify, adapt, translate, prepare 
derivative works from, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble or otherwise 
attempt to derive source code from the Software, unless otherwise permitted, 
(ii) take any action to circumvent or defeat the security or content usage 
rules provided, deployed or enforced by any functionality (including without 
limitation digital rights management functionality) contained in the 
Software, (iii) use the Software to access, copy, transfer, transcode or 
retransmit content in violation of any law or third party rights, or (iv) 
remove, obscure, or alter Google's copyright notices, trademarks, or other 
proprietary rights notices affixed to or contained within or accessed in 
conjunction with or through the Software.
