    Remember that Oracle only has an obligation to give source to the people *they*
    give binaries to. If you get binaries from an Oracle customer, you'll have to
    hit that customer up for the corresponding source.

    I'll bite.. what's an acceptable Signed-Off-By: chain if somebody is pushing
    somebody else's GPL'ed code upstream? I seem to remember some maintainers
    being a tad prickly about this case in the past?
