I hope this doesn't prevent you from the work you've been doing: we love portable software and hope you keep it up. I merely suggest that at some point in the future, it seems likely you will be required to change the name.
We know of being a very small organization down to the "empire's periphery".
But, we can assure you all, we're still pushing everywhere is possible to be 100% in accordance with all owner's policies.
To erase any confusion, Danilo, I never claimed you were altering code and then not publishing changes nor taking software and passing it off as your own. I said that you were distributing GPLed binaries (OpenOffice.org, LibreOffice, ClamWin, Notepad++, etc) and not also distributed the source code for said binaries. I've mentioned this to you before on this forum. And SourceForge staff has reminded you of your requirement to distribute the sources. Basically, if you distribute a binary, you have to also distribute the corresponding source code for a period of at least 3 years from when you last distribute the binary. Linking to the publisher's own download of the source is not sufficient, you have to host it yourself.
I think that there has been a small misunderstanding, John. My post was not a self defense, but I said that other projects were be accused of what I wrote above. But, at least, now is a little more clear who was the "anonymous" who warned SourceForge..
By the way, analyzing the GPL 2, you were refering just to point (3.a), but please note that there are two more alternative options for whom copy and distribute GPL licensed programs. So it is not mandatory to provide the source code, particularly for non-commercial distributions like ours. Please have a look:
3. You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it,
under Section 2) in object code or executable form under the terms of
Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable
source code, which must be distributed under the terms of Sections
1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three
years, to give any third party, for a charge no more than your
cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer
to distribute corresponding source code. (This alternative is
allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
received the program in object code or executable form with such
an offer, in accord with Subsection b above.)
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code.
Have also a look to point (6.d) of the GPL 3
d) Convey the object code by offering access from a designated
place (gratis or for a charge), and offer equivalent access to the
Corresponding Source in the same way through the same place at no
further charge. You need not require recipients to copy the
Corresponding Source along with the object code. If the place to
copy the object code is a network server, the Corresponding Source
may be on a different server (operated by you or a third party)
that supports equivalent copying facilities, provided you maintain
clear directions next to the object code saying where to find the
Corresponding Source. Regardless of what server hosts the
Corresponding Source, you remain obligated to ensure that it is
available for as long as needed to satisfy these requirements.
