Ah, I see I overreached the question.  You can document how to add a
repository to your configuration, but in documenting, you cannot use as
an example any repository that contains forbidden bits, nor suggest that
this is a way to obtain forbidden bits.  Might I suggest the CBI
(Cooperative Bug Isolation) project?

This is a totally FOSS way to contribute to the bettering of free
software.
