Vendor only distributable packages - was " Kernel 2059 from Dave Jones fixes nvidia.ko loading"



Why can't there be a virtual yum repo?  
IE


[Third Party]
flash-plugin...rpm -> http://macromedia.mplug.org/rpm/RPMS.macromedia/flash-plugin-7.0.63-1.i386.rpm
vmware-player...rpm -> http://download3.vmware.com/software/vmplayer/VMware-player-1.0.1-19317.i386.rpm
...etc

This way you are not redistributing it but you are pointing to the original at the vendor's location.  Gentoo does something similar but they embed a script that pulls the tarball down and installs it on the user's machine without intervention. 

This probably needs to go to the Yum group.

Since it was created. It just (as a non US organisation) doesn't care about
half baked and international treaty violating software patent rules that don't
apply in the countries in which it operates.
