But it does not say that the source must be made available for every
distribution. A BSD distribution that includes the source code is certainly
Open Source, since the source is obviously there, along with the permission
to modify and redistribute it.
Yes, binary-only distributions may occur downstream. But nothing in the OSD
requires every instance of a program to be Open Source.
