the issue of GPL violations by small Linux distributions.
"Woodford's error was that while he does provide MEPIS's modified Debian/Ubuntu kernel source code in a Debian source-package, he had not provided copies of the source code that was available somewhere, which he had not modified.
So, for example, say I released Steven's Special Penguin Sauce Linux. In it, I'd have my own modifications to the kernel source code, and the usual Linux utilities like the vim screen-based text processor. I would have to provide my users with not only my kernel's code, but also with vim's source code as well, even though I hadn't done a thing to its code.
