Why are individuals who are trying to help the project being held to a
higher standard that the projects own download page?
http://pcb.gpleda.org/ 's download link does not contain GTK sources,
sources of compilers or sources for the Windows operating system.

Doesn't PCB's source code actually predate the GPL?  When and who put
it under GPL?

All of this legal crap just takes the fun and desire out of working on
the project.

Using the 'minipack' build system takes care of downloading the
sources so they would be available to upload to be GPL compliant.
It is also a lot less painful that what Vacla just described.
