Thanks for that.

It’s not open source software if it contains compiled code. I’m not sure that a SGA would
even cover compiled code but INAL. Some binary files (jpegs, gifs etc) are OK as they are
not compiled code. This is probably an edge case but it would IMO be easier to compile the
code in question rather than include the jars in the source release.
