You have to pay for those packages, so I doubt that is an option. It 
certainly can't hurt to ask.

However in any case I am interested to get a package-list from each of the 
listed Linbit packages so we can make the ELRepo packages similar. Or at 
least compatible.

What worries me is that Linbit doesn't offer repositories and therefore 
does not have a risk of offering multiple versions at the same time. It is 
up to the user to select what packages they integrate (which is always a 
good practice if you want to control your environment).

But our users expect more, spoiled brats :-)
