Interesting proposal. Seems useful.

I don't think we've done it this way before. I can understand not  
wanting to make source openly available, but I don't like that "to  
work out logistics of access" happens individually, and the "on  
request" makes me a bit itchy, too.

I think if you do things this way you should at least implement a  
clear, open, privacy-respecting, documented and non-discriminating  
logistics thingie (along the lines of "tarball is at https://<foo>/,  
contact me for username/password. We won't use your contact details  
in any way except to provide you the username/password.").
