The catalyst changes would make catalyst unusable for anything *other*
than creating a LiveCD.  On my machine, I actually have 3 versions of
catalyst currently.

catalyst - vanilla catalyst 1.1.10.10
catalyst2 - a catalyst 2.0 snapshot from today, being tested currently
catalyst-livecd - my hand-hacked catalyst

At any rate, it has nothing to do with open source.  I'm not giving out
some kind of "binary" version of my hacked catalyst, so there's no
requirement anywhere for me to give out anything.  Most of the custom
code is being slowly cleaned up and put into something usable, which
will be released in catalyst 2.0.  The "problem" is stemming from people
that cannot accept that I won't put out shit code *now* and refuse to
wait until it is released code.

There's nothing special about the spec files.  They look just like any
other spec file.  The "butter" is in the fsscript.sh, along with the
catalyst changes.
