Subject Re: Manually created binary data in ASF repos?

Aaahh great ... happy to hear that.

Well then I'll definitely go the path of using these binary test-data files and as they will
have the ending ".pcapng" I guess most people will immediately know what they are and we'll
also point it out in the readme or where it fits best.

pdfs, fonts etc ect are all OK so this should also be OK. I can point to a number of releases
reviewed here that have had binary files (but not compiled source code) in them. Might be
a good to label them clearly so anyone who looks know what they are.
    Totally fine, yep.
    The reasoning is, we can't vote on binary _code_, only the source.
    If the binary data is test data, there is nothing to _code_ to verify.
    There are plenty of examples. We don't vote on JPEGs and PNGs either ;)
