Actually, that's not what I meant to suggest. :) I've been wondering for
a while whether to add a binary package (a debug one) to one of mine.
A possible question is: will an RC bug be opened against the current
package if the NEW one gets REJECTED for missing licenses?

If that's the case, fine. We're going to fix those horrible licensing
issues we have in the archive as soon as a binary package is added. But
that can also mean one will refrain from adding binary packages because
one is lazy/doesn't have time to check licenses etc.

If that's not the case, one might be tempted to try and sneak a new
binary package through NEW, without worrying about the consequences (a
possible RC bug).

And since I'm all for full disclosure, try the following and guess why
there's no blender-dbg package yet:
 $ apt-get source blender && ls -d blender-*/extern/*/

(To be discharge, I'm already fighthing against embedded code copies and
with time, things are getting better, but I'm not done yet.)

To sum up: that was a real question, I didn't mean to point fingers.
