Well, I don't think so.

IANAL, but I think you must provide access to the code that compiles
to the same binary you're distributing (so it's not just pointing to
the repository; at the very least it's the release tag or equivalent),
and you must still do so even if the third party hosting the code
suddenly decides to take its copy of the source code off-line.

But as I've said, IANAL and I'm out of my deep here. Let's hear from
the people who takes the decisions and speaks the legalese.
