So the source isn't shared because someone won't follow the policy of
the site?  Sounds like a wanna-be licenseing policy except that it'd be
much clearer if it was written down as a licenseing agreement.  Of
course, it would be DFSG-compliant, but I guess that's not something
you're too concerned about, eh?

I doubt this- if Ryan had just said "sorry, not interested", or
whatever, and there wasn't any other history to it then I doubt the
request from whomever else it was (I forget atm) would have been denied.
Of course, I don't know for sure, no one really does.
