Exactly. The GPL (v2 anyway, not sure about v3) requires that you
provide either the sources, or a written assurance that you will
provide the sources to anybody who obtained the binary, which must be
valid for 3 years. IIRC, this was further clarified in the FSF's FAQ
that just linking to some site that happens to have the source right
now is not adequate, unless you've made arrangements with that site.
