You're right, ssh was a bad example, probably not covered by clause 13.

I was joking when I said the docks part, but a link saying "contact
us, we'll get you the source" and that link actually takes you to a
place where the source can eventually be found, maybe after talking
with humans, does seem like a more or less customary method of
distribution (not sure about the humans in between bit).
