The concern is that depending on the legal interpretation of 3b and 3c

release of Fedora for 3 years, then take it down, but on the day before
we do, someone else redistributes it and then asks us to honor our "3
years worth of source" promise, since for them, it hasn't been three
years since their initial date of redistribution.

I have a pile of F7 live cds. If I'm still a board member 3 years from
now (god forbid) and I had that F7 livecd out. Is Fedora as a project
responsible for making the source available still?   Again how we are
dealing with livecds right now makes this issue unavoidable. If the
clock starts over everytime i hand one of these officially pressed
disks out.. you're screwed. I have enough f7 livecd disks left to hand
out once a year for the next decade or more.  Feel free to fly up here
and forcible take them from me.... muhahahahahahaha.
