Apple We've had an immense hubbub about the delay in the source code release of Honeycomb, which led to a storm of critique being sent Google's way. Turns out there's another company withholding source code, and this time it's Apple. They have stopped releasing the LGPL source code for WebKit in iOS since iOS 4.3.0, released about 8 weeks ago. Turns out - this isn't the first time Apple has refused to release (L)GPL'd code. It took them six months to release the required GPL source code for iOS 4.1.

As noted above you don't have to publish the code, just make it available upon request.

Has any one actually made a request for the code and been refused? Like all Apple storm in a teacup issues this will no doubt be rectified at some point and everyone can stop panicking.
