One of my weekly tasks is to highlight some amount of projects on our front page. Before we
do that, we research each project to make reasonably sure that actual source exists.

It's probably safe to guess that "most folks" don't read our TOU so are not aware that source
is a required component. Ideally, that source should be available for download - our TOU makes
that fairly clear, "In addition, the Code that you submit must also be made available in human-readable
(i.e., “Source Code”) form. Whenever reasonably feasible, you agree that you will make
Source Code available on or via corresponding to Code that you post, submit,
display or distribute. You must make Source Code available for all portions of Code that you
have modified, enhanced or otherwise created derivative works from (with any such modification
or derivative work being a “Change”)." 

With that, it would be nice if the process indicated a way to package up source for distribution,
not only reference in a repo or even located elsewhere.
