The thing is: what is the copyright status of such a thing ? Is it
free ? To me, it seems that it's a bit like a screenshot of a game --
it can only be considered free if the game is free, which, in this
case, isn't true. I understand that you, as a developer, found this
dump extremely useful. But will the users care ?
I'm just worried about a potential REJECT from the ftpmasters.

That is but a small part of the problem.

That still doesn't clear the copyright problem, as far as I can tell !

You're welcome, and sorry for not getting back to you earlier.
