I've been attempting to read up on and understand this issue since the
flamewar started. Am I correct in thinking that the kernel source code
can now be found in one of the SRPM packages? If so, then it's still on
the disks, right? So Red Hat *does* distribute them?

Note: I am aware that the SRPMS disks are a different set, and that
someone would then have to download the binary ISO images plus either
the kernel SRPMS independently or the SRPMS ISO images as well. However,
it sounds like a more-consistent approach since all source code is found
in SRPMS rather than in binary RPM packages.

What, if anything, am I missing?

Cheers,
