WYGYWER

For those tempted to provide binaries from FOSS, that can neither be run on the same target platform as the "official" one, nor be recompiled from source to produce a byte for byte identical version (due to the use of non freely/readily available tools, encryption keys, etc.), please remember the fourth tenet of Open Source:

What You Get (in binary form), You Will Easily Replicate/Run (from source)

Is what the GPLv3 is all about, really. Oh, and of course, it's pronounced "Why-Gyver".
