I agree, it should be made public, but it can't.  So we only commit
the .ini file changes that don't list the hidden repositories.  Full
disclosure is incompatible with licensing agreements.  While it would
be nice to be free of them, that's not achievable; a nirvana fallacy.

It's one all.  I'd like to hear what others think.
