Re: Reproducible, precompiled .o files: what say policy+gpl?

I know this thread has progressed beyond the actual situation 
I asked about, but I wanted to just throw in my opinion too.

This is now also my point of view.

When I started this thread, I also _felt_ that contrib was the correct 
place for my application, but didn't really know why. Now I can explain 
it better. The proposal of keeping one version in main and one in contrib
also addresses my concern about usability.

So, I am happy with the outcome of this discussion already. =)
