[Geopackage] ArcGIS produced geopackage files?

The trial includes Geopackage support. I’ve attached a simple Geopackage (xz compressed) of the ‘Admin 0 – Countries’ data from Natural Earth [1], created in 10.3, which should be equivalent to 10.2.2 in the output it produces. Playing around with it with GDAL 1.11.1 this Geopackage looks to work fine, but I didn’t do any comprehensive testing.

You could get a copy of the trial version at http://www.esri.com/software/arcgis/arcgis-for-desktop/free-trial. Not sure if that includes gpkg support or not.
I don't have a Windows VM at hand on my workstation, otherwise I would try it out myself.

Best regards,

Hey all, I'm still slowly working on the website. Was wondering if someone with ArcGIS desktop 10.2.2 or above could read in some open shapefiles and produce some geopackage vector files for me? I want to put them up on the website, so others can test with them.

Or if anyone (pepijn? even?) just has some they've been testing with already on their computer. Totally ok if it's the same data set as others on the website.
