First it was procps patches kept private. The original author
had to take it back so that non-Debian systems could have
a good version.

Now I hear sysvinit is also being kept private.

Is it really that hard to upload to sunsite.unc.edu and
tsx-11.mit.edu in standard .tar.gz format? (maybe you could
substitute .cpio.bzip2 if you like that better, but NOT .deb)
Nobody expects an .rpm, which wouldn't be fair to Slackware
and do-it-yourself users anyway.

If there is anything else you are hiding, please upload it
to sunsite.unc.edu and tsx-11.mit.edu right now.

(you could instead remove point #2 of your social contract)
