Hi Corbin

I thought I'd raise awareness, so I just posted a note on the FreeDOS
website on the FreeDOS twitter.

However, I noticed that the CarbonOS ISO doesn't contain any source code,
and I didn't see a link on your download page that offered the source code.

Note that under the GNU General Public License (GPL), under which the
FreeDOS kernel and most FreeDOS utilities are provided, you must provide
source code, or offer to provide the source code. The best way to do this
is to include the source code on the installation CD itself. You certainly
have plenty of room to do so (the ISO is only 2.4MB). Please include source
code in your next Alpha release. It would be best to remove the ISOs that
do not contain source code https://sourceforge.net/projects/carbon-os/files/
until you can include the source code as required under the GNU GPL.
