I modified a BSD licensed software and proposed the patch to the contributors. I has been discussed and refused. I'm respecting the decision not to merge the changes, however I want to provide the modification in an easy accessible way.
I have an OSSRH account for a namespace that differs from the namespace of the original software. Is it ok if I upload the original software + my changes + a modification to
build.gradle with my OSSRH namespace?

I'm aware of alternative ways of distributing my modification. I'm interested in the correctness of this particular approach.
