Stopping shipping binaries would cause some negative effect for our
project, so it might be an option, but not best one.

Binaries made by our community are essential for our QA.

Without them we stand "with empty hands" in the public with negative
effects for our brand and image.

Supporting our users by community members would break down.

So the impact for the improvement of our commity would be tremendous, if
we "delegate" this tasks to a third party.

Kind regards
