It takes time and resources to write an installer. Time and resources to
write a packaging system. Time and resources to maintain a website. RedHat
already has all of those things. Does that mean that Debian is bad?
It's true that it will take time and resources to set up a non-free archive.
It's also true that there's no particular reason that Debian should do it.
