It sounds like splitting hairs, but would providing a link to the sources
count as "making the sources available" or must the sources be actual hosted 
on the project's server?

After all, we are talking about several Gigabytes of "web space" that a project 
(in case of a full blown general purpose distro) must provide to host the 
sources - which are already available through their original sources and 
thus would be a redundant copy.

Kind regards,
