[LibX] MPL and local edition code

I guess the question is, to stay in compliance with MPL, do we need to have downloadable code for the specific configuration for our edition - or are the changes we make simply to configuration files that have no effect on the open-source code?  (We haven't made changes to the core code, to my knowledge.)

I'd much rather discuss how we could integrate any improvements into LibX than the technicalities of the MPL license.  Perhaps you could post a patch for perusal?  That would also make the code modifications available.

It's been pointed out to me that the terms of the Mozilla Public License under which LibX is distributed require that local editions - or any code with binary distribution -- requires that the code modifications be made available (Section 3.2. of the MPL version 1.1).  Is there a way to link to the code itself on the LibX site to stay in compliance with the MPL?  Or is this not needed?
