"Why he insists on discouraging Amiga developers from coming anywhere near GPL licensed software is beyond me, I thought he was quite a supporter of the GPL."
No way is Bernie discouraging developers from using GPL. He is simply reminding them to use it correctly, which means always making the source available with the binary, so that the user can compile and debug it himself if necessary. It is so simple.
Obliging users to request the source code is within the letter of the GPL, but not its spirit. The code archive should be placed at the same download site (or on the same disk) as the binary unless there is a good reason not to. There should not normally be any need to ask for the source code.
