I now see that, per "ncm" (Nathan Myers, whom I always heed closely), elsewhere on this thread, Marcus simply didn't realise that checking into an outside-accessible CVS server constituted "distribution".

I am sorry, but I don't quite believe that an experienced developer, as Marcus has been described, would not know that having code in a publicly accessible archive is distribution.
I can see that for a newbie, but not for a seasoned developer.
If it really was the case that an experienced developer didn't know what checking code into a public CVS server means, there would be something seriously lacking in the OBSD projects.
