Description

Google maintains a debian package for their google play downloader. google-musicmanager-beta_current_amd64.deb
I wish to have this propagated to the Solus repository.

  1. This is distributed as a Debian package and not as a source code, which is not ideal and rarely accepted to the repos.
  2. Does the license permit redistribution and repackaging? If not this would need to be added to the 3rd party section, and Core Team usually doesn't want to do that.

So this could be hard to accept into the repos, maybe you could give more explanation of what it does?

Google Play Music is going away, there is no reason to have the music manager. Not to mention it isn't redistributable.
