Vendors don't like it, Linus doesn't like it, RMS hates it :) The proper fix to all of this problems would be to provide distribution specific packages. I know that's a lot more of work and many more people should be involved into this, but how hard can it be? Any piece of software aimed to linux has packages for most popular distributions, so it is doable. And once you provide a decent package, vendors may take over it and make it official and maintain it for you.

excellent 
what we should do is that the package is automatically created using jenkins.
