I agree with both Eric and Stefan. In my opinion this would qualify as a publisher.

I'm hoping Paul will look into this.
Here is the problem as I see it from past discussions:
1) Fan based materials fall under the header of "It's not an official Publisher", so we can't get
2) It's against our policy to include homebrew/fan-based content -
2a) Reason 1: We don't know if it's a knock off of closed content materials
2b) Reason 2: Without proper permission you can run into legal issues - Star Wars, Kingdom Hearts,
and any other popular franchise that has a fan base, require not only author permission but license
holder permission to include their materials.
Now, if #1 is circumvented cause Paizo has permission from the fans to use the material as they see
fit, then we might have more leeway.
Like I said, that is for the PR monkey team to look into, if they give the green light, then I have
no problem including such materials in PCGen.
If you want to share your materials, I'll toss it up along with my personal fan material on my own
github. Cause, I enjoy materials that inspire me. My Kingdom Hearts Fan set has been a regular part
of my campaigns for several years now. I use Heartless and Keyblades for my tabletop.
