Just to clarify, the contenders for no binpkg would be the following, potentially more.
- ebuilds that are fetch restricted - ebuilds that installs files unchanged, like kernel sources - Binary ebuilds, -bin, that just use src_install and do not build anything There may be some other cases, but I think that covers the main ones. The first case, should NEVER, not even optionally be allowed to be binpkg. That is re-distributing something that is fetch restricted. If it cannot be mirrored, I doubt it can legally be re-packaged. The later 2 could be "optional" defaulted to not build, but could be forced. There is little benefit at that point but some may prefer those be a binpkg. I have no problem with it being optional. -- William L. Thomson Jr.
