What is proper fair use of addins/scripts in File Exchange?

If I like an addin or script in the File Exchange... and want to share with others in my organization.

  • Is it OK to save a local copy on some shared file system for others to more easily access/install (potentially even adding it into our internal addin management/delivery system)?
  • Or is the expectation that each user download individually?

Either way (and definitely as we tweak and enhance) we would want to reference and attribute the author's contribution.

Kind Regards, -Landon
