Source, source, source, very much source, etc.  Exactly what part of that
is not source?  Source is the set of information used to maintain and
develop a product, including the documentation (in pre-generated form).
That is the standard term under software engineering parlance.  Everything
that is not derived from some other source is "source".

I'm not sure if its safe to ask me that question right now.  The result
is usually a rebuilt repository, or a complete rewrite of some piece.
I used to do that to Dean all the time.
