I'm on the fence about this. On the one hand, I understand your point.
On the other hand, the existing policy is "encouraging" (forcing)
Nicholas to "pursue an official repository with openSUSE", which seems
like an even better outcome. Perhaps we should wait to hear back from
him on how that went? If there's something "more official" (and I don't
know what that means in the openSUSE world, especially give that his
existing link is on, we could link to that in the
way you've described.
