My argument rests solely upon the form the source code takes after the corresponding binary leaves the company. I don't care about VCSes; I care about non-obfuscated source forms.
Red Hat's kernel SRPMs can be as monolithic and obfuscated as they want as long as they don't distribute the binary RPMs that they could generate.
No, that wouldn't be a useful thing to do, but Red Hat's revenue model is their problem. Their compliance with the GNU GPL is everyone's.
