You are absolutly correct, )doing so is an violation of the GPL which XBMC source code is licensed under), even for internal testing you still have to provide the source code to those that you distribute if they request it.
Please, do not release/link/upload any binaries compiled from GPL'ed licensed source code without also offering also release/link/upload the source code for those binaries as well.
There is no need to start a discussion about GPL interpretations here as such discussion is bound to start a flamewar and we will be forced to lock this thread. So, no offense to David or anyone else, but let us now all just patiently wait until the source code is published first before we even ask for binaries.
