I asked cPanel a few years ago. I got the run-around and they closed
the support ticket 2 or 3 times without providing any source or diffs.
Only after persisting did they send me a link to a half-assed diff
that I know didn't match all that they changed.
I've since had the displeasure of working on a cPanel hosted system
and there is a source directory for mailman. If anyone's really
curious, I'll diff it against whatever the official source release
they're claiming it is.
They may be honoring the letter of the license, but they deserve the
shit they get here for abusing the spirit of it so badly. If I made
changes to Mailman that caused a regular stream of frequently asked
questions I'd fix the problems or get involved in helping answer them
just so I could sleep at night. cPanel doesn't do that and they are
charging folks good money to package up free software. That leaves a
bad taste in *my* mouth, and I'm not even a significant contributor to
