"Gives in"? This looks like just more stalling! "Monsoon will make modified BusyBox source code publicly

In the coming weeks?? Where do these companies get the idea that it's okay to release their binaries even a day before the source code? The GPL clearly doesn't allow that, it says that whenever the binaries are distributed, the source must be distributed with them or made available as well.<p>
