Re-distribute PyCharm binary in community repository


First of all, thanks for building such a great tool for Python!

I would like to package and redistribute PyCharm binary as an ArchLinux package in an unofficial ArchLinux package repository. In advance, I need to know if I am allowed to do so or what should I pay attention to (attaching license texts, etc.), thus asking here.

Thank you very much!

The PyCharm license agreement does not allow redistribution (see item 4 (b) (i)):
"(b) Licensee may not:
(i) sell, redistribute, encumber, give, lend, rent, lease, sublicense, or otherwise transfer the Software, or any portions of the Software, to anyone without the prior written consent of Licensor;

At the moment we don't plan to allow any exceptions to this for Linux package repositories, because we want to make sure that users always have access to the latest version of our software and can receive bugfix updates as soon as we release them, and packages maintained by third parties give us no such guarantees.
