Absolutely yes, assuming it's something along the lines of "a binary
from official sources exists and this repackages it." If you're talking
about building a package and then distributing it using SBo, then
I'm not comfortable with that at all. It's not about you personally, but
rather that it's exactly what led to the creation of this project and
I don't want to lead users back down that road.
