No, it is never my turn to package software in factory if I don't
that skill. You can not ask me to do that. You can ask me other

Rhw open source spirit applied here is rather simple:

you either do the work
you find/motivate somebody the work for you

so, you either package things up yourself
you find a contributor/maintainer that is willing to do this for you.

you can ask, but you can't demand.

Of course, I agree absolutely.

But on the other hand, you can not also demand users to do the packaging
themselves. It doesn't work that way, either.
