    If distributions are shipping binary modules and other out of tree code to
    their users, then they should bear responsibility for supporting and
    maintaining the infrastructure required for it, and not expect upstream
    maintainers to do it for them.

    Additionally, if they want to expose their users to risks arising from
    broken and unecessary infrastructure, then they should bear the cost and
    responsibility of doing that and not expect others to do so as well.

    I don't see how this is even slightly difficult to understand.
