    Exclamation Is songbird really open source? not really!

    I have searched all over the internet there is no way to download all of the source for songbird unless going through http://src.songbirdnest.com/source/xref/client/ and download it file by file (and there are hundreds) and then making the directory system of it and there are most there are likely still files that Mozilla has not released! I just want to download a single tar.gz and edit the source withing and then compile I mean WTF Mozilla you can't even do this yet you can implement some fancy source browser that takes MORE effort to create than a compressed file! How can a company **** up so much!

    1. songbird isnt mozilla

    2. GPL doesn't stipulate that the source has to be nicely packaged, although im pretty sure you can take advantage of the opengrok structure to download everything

    There is a source tarball:

    Looks like it contains everything that is required?
