The requirement is to provide a written offer to give someone the source
when they ask.

Right.  We could possibly attempt to automate something to generate an
easy-to-download list of "possibly-related sources".  That could even be
self-service with a web thingy you can just hand a Fedora rpm N-V-R.  But
at any rate, we can automate it enough to make sure that we are not put out
by manual work involved in complying with legitimate requests to produce
the sources.


Thanks,
