We don't distribute under that clause of the GPL, because the 3 year
timeline on it is entirely too vague and we don't want to fall into that
trap.  We distribute under the clause that says if we offer binaries, we
have to offer source with them.  This gives us the ability to remove
binary and source packages at will, because when we stop offering the
binary, we can stop offering the source.  This is why the kernel rpm
having binaries with no matching source in the kernel srpm is a problem
for us.
