Samba does not "vet" the repository in any way before
it goes out the door via anonymous CVS.

It is rsync copied from the master to a public staging
area before release, but it is copied in total, not
filtered in any way.

What gave you the idea that the repository was filtered ?

Just to clear that up.

Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
