The Steinberg VST SDK can now be downloaded without creating an account
on their website by everyone.

This makes it possible for package systems, where the user downloads the
sources and compiles the package on the local system, e.g. Arch AUR and
(I think) portage, to include them.

There are still other issues with the VST SDK like the obligation to
enter into a license agreement with Steinberg, when you are
"publishing"* software, which uses the SDK, and to include the VST logo
and a copyright notice everywhere. But at least, as a developer or
packager, you do not violate the restriction to not re-distribute the
SDK in this case.

* Where it is unclear IMHO, whether a distributor is "publishing" a
software, by merely packaging it.
