Well, if you *modify* programs that you want to put on said live cd (like adding
your own patches, different from the official ones found in portage) then IMO
you should at least give access to the patches. If you aim to create a completely
separate distribution, thus using your own repository, web site and portage tree
(for example), then it makes perfect sense to provide a full source code as well.
But in the case of Gentoo offshot which intends to use existing Gentoo
infrastucture (mirrors, sources, etc.) I'd suggest to consult the original
copyright (copyleft?) holders, that means Gentoo officials. Just in case.
PS. I'll stop posting now as IANAL and the above are only my own opinions.
