the question is: Does Debian guarantee (or at least promise) to provide
the sources for a sufficient amount of time _in the required version_?I
guess with http://snapshot.debian.org/ we do (and having AGPL software
in Debian include a link to there would already be very nice), but
having the source shipped with the package itself would solve a this
problems more elegantly, and would also work in a lonely-island-setting.
