IMHO, you may call the packages whatever you want, as you're the one who
builds them and make them available from your site.

They are not "official" firmwares from the Rockbox team, and I am reluctant
to ever go that path.

We already have a huge amount of bug reports being filed on CVS versions
(mainly daily builds), and having more bug reports show up on various
patched, 3rd party releases that random people want to make available will
DROWN us in weird, uncontrolled and impossible bug reports.

I approve of and I acknowledge your ambition to provide custom-patched
firmwares to people. I think it's great and I bet lots of other people will
have a lot of fun with these. But you need to keep them a little bit off the
main and official Rockbox road (and I do hope that your web page will make it
clear that we will NOT appreciate bug reports filed in the general rockbox
bug-tracker on this kind of custom firmwares). This project and the software
already is a huge vehicle, and we're trying hard to hold on to the wheel.

Oh, these are MY opinions. Take them or leave em. Others will think
differently.
