gidyn (1092607) writes "Is there a mistake in GPLv3? Section 4 begins

You may convey verbatim copies of the Program's source code as you receive it, in any medium, provided that you ... give all recipients a copy of this License along with the Program."

What is this intended to achieve? The clause places no restrictions on someone who only distributes source code, and no restrictions on someone who only distributes executables (in accordance with 6d). Only someone who distributes both is required to "give all recipients a copy of this License"."
