Re: large data arrays within .c source

I think in general, we should push vendors away from binary blobs if we can, which would help keep the contribution guidelines to a high standard. Simply rejecting the vendors' blobs during the code review process will force them to reconsider how to submit source code instead of a binary.

We can learn from the coreboot project, which has been trying to define their own policies around binary blobs recently.

I wonder how an array containing binary data created from source code with an unknown license can be said to conform to this:
