Why do you force linux user to compile from a source?

In "Downloads" section for GNU/Linux is only source code, but for other OS is binaries. I don't think it's a good idea to deprive one of the most used OS.
Yes, I know that it is tradition to leave source code instead of binaries to this kind of operating system, but it's a bad tradition, I think.

Use the package from repository of your linux distribution.

In package generally older version.
Anyway, why? I'm just interesting: for example Xonotic provides in one a download executables for all supported OS. You are testing new releases anyway, so why don't put compiled binaries in "downloads" section?

Can you do automated builds for linux, like the ppsspp project?
i like the idea for not installing the program.
I download it, extract it, then run it.
Much easier then build from tar.gz.
