One correction is that Bitkeeper source is available (remeber the flame wars over the fact that bitkeeper required the modified versions to still pass the regression tests that among other things verified that you didn't remove the openlogging portion)
There are restrictions on what you can do with the modified version so it's not 'Open Source' by the legal definition, but you can look at the source and verify what it is doing.
