Microsoft hasn't so much "released" it as a few of their engineers have sort of put it up there where people like our correspondent can stumble across it. It just takes a little grepping to turn up the GNU license throughout the source, though. Just download the file msripv6-fnord-1.5.exe, use the standard unzip util you'll find available in your distro, and run grep -rl GNU Source/* for a list of the files that at least contain the expression "GNU," most of which seemed to contain the standard copyleft notification within.
