It might be. I am honestly not sure - I suspect that this still will 
mean that some places might not be able to easily use Bro 
anymore--adding external package sources does not seem to be a viable 
option everywhere.

As a side-note, it also looks like that means that we cannot provide 
binary packages for RedHat/CentOS anymore.
