Like debian-cd the tarball includes the isolinux.bin file taken from the
Debian package. (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

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.
