But not all the patches are in the portage tree? Trivial example might
be the kernel where the ebuild is tiny and references an http location
for the patches? My understanding is that for a GPL licence one should
provide a copy of these patches in the "code dump", not just an http
link? Is that your understanding?
So by implication it's not clear that catalyst does satisfy your GPL
requirements for distribution?
I suspect something more is probably happening, eg some of the linked
patches probably get included into the source download location and
probably you can pick them up there - however, there are now a LOT of
ways to fetching source and patches and it would be hard to be sure of
Has someone done some actual probing on this? Peter what does catalyst
provide for say gcc/kernel sources in it's source output? All the patches?
