No, I talked about the "*.info" files. Someone else said here, some time
ago, that the intention of a Linux distribution is to provide the people
with "compiled files", not with the source that everyone has to compile.
Some people have slow computers, little memory, etc. and they surely don't
want to compile these files themselves all the time (whenever a package is
installed, upgraded, etc.).
