Add note on building from sources

Despite the fact we distribute source distributions, those cannot be compiled without access to internal repositories (e.g. MEAD repository).
We need to propagate that information visibly to our customers, likely in following form in documentation and/or sources distributions zips in a readme file:
On request, Red Hat shall provide customers of [PRODUCT NAME] with
sufficient access to certain contents of our internal Maven
repository to facilitate rebuilding of original or modified
versions of components of [PRODUCT NAME]. Such access will be
provided by Red Hat to the requesting customer without undue delay.
This looks more like a productization issue (release engineering) rather than a docs one. We don't provide any info in our docs for building from source code, nor do we have any plans to do so at this stage.
