The site source has not been released for the simple reason that we have not had the time to do it. One of the things we'd have to do is examine the various external components we use (there's a few of them) and figure out which licence is compatible with them all; until then, I don't know which license we would use. We also need to do a security pass, set up distribution, mailing lists, etc. It remains on the list, with a reasonably high priority even.
But the list is full of high-priority tasks, starting with "get LWN out every week."
