Would this solve the issue? (UPCASE indicates changes)
c. to distribute or communicate copies of the Original Work and
Derivative Works to the public, with the proviso that copies of
Original Work or Derivative Works that You distribute or
communicate shall be licensed under this Transitive Grace Period
Public Licence. <12 MONTH CLAUSE DELETED>
3. Grant of Source Code License. The term "Source Code"
means the preferred form of the Original Work for making
modifications to it and all available documentation describing
how to modify the Original Work. Licensor agrees to provide
a machine-readable copy of the Source Code of the Original
Work NO LATER THAN 12 MONTHS AFTER THE
LICENSOR DISTRIBUTES THE ORIGINAL WORK.
Licensor reserves the right to satisfy this obligation by
placing a machine-readable copy of the Source Code in
an information repository reasonably calculated to
permit inexpensive and convenient access by You for as
long as Licensor continues to distribute the Original Work OR
ONE YEAR, WHICHEVER IS GREATER.
Don't quite know if that latter is needed. Or if the changes
are in line with what Zooko wanted.
