It's like the 4th time that comes up. Did you read all of that? What
happened is that the guy ripped out some parts of Xcode that he didn't
want and made his own distribution, under dubious legal status. Then
Apple came along, saw this, and created a trimmed-down version of
Xcode called "Xcode command line tools" that is almost the same as
whaht Kenneth Reitz is distributing, plus the extra non-free things
that Kenneth was trying to distribute.

Also note that this isn't even "open source" as he claims at the
bottom of that blog post, because open source also means free
distribution, which this doesn't have.
