Many developers don't provide their software via a repository instead they provide the source code with an INSTALL file. They depend on dependencies they resolve through the repositories. Approving "nimue" just as symlink that points to the package management system across linux systems would enable them to write just one install script for debian and red hat systems for example.
But I will go the way by providing the function as package.
