(In this case version 3.61+dfsg-1) It may be better to include information about this in the tarball, but I haven't done so. You can access the source at http://snapshot.debian.net/package/syslinux/ I just created http://alioth.debian.org/~jak-guest/README.source which documents this. This seems to follow GPL. Excerpt of GPL 2: If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not compelled to copy the source along with the object code. Excerpt of the GPL-3: d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party) that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
