Ah, I didn't notice that on my initial read.  I was so happy to see a
package for buildd that I ran of to check it out at once. :/

With this argument you could claim that all the packages distributed
from peoples home directories are also "inside" of Debian.  I'm not
sure if that is a valid argument.  Of course, you might consider
whatever you want.  I'm just not too sure how many would agree with
you here.

As far as I know the GPL, it only require that the source is available
on request for three years after the binaries were distributed.

I guess your email to debian-devel might be considered a request for
the source, but I am not sure if you are sending it to the correct
recipient. :)
