Why is it such a pain in the butt to find source, license information,
and so on?

Maybe it’s like a pretty girl hiding her beauties, only shown to those
really interested with a long enough breath.

Most licenses are in a license file in the root, or in the readme, so I
clicked the docs and there it was http://hitsquad.rubyforge.org/vlad/

In my experience, RDoc documentation is API documentation, and things
like README files and LICENSE files are delivered with the source, so
checking the RDoc documentation did not seem like an approach that would
be very likely to yield positive results. There it is, though.

API documentation, for some reason – and that appears to be the only
place to find it. This definitely seems suboptimal.

I guess it’s easy if you know in advance that’s where the link is hidden.
Taking an approach of checking the places one might think are most likely
to offer a link to the source first, and those least likely last or not
at all, it would be a while before one might think to check API
documentation. I it might be worth rethinking this approach to making
sources available.

You don’t have to convince me. Seattle.rb is special, or at least a
couple of its members are.

On the other hand (the “blaming you for laziness” hand), getting
source for any gem is easy. Once you have the source for vlad,
README.txt provides the repo and license.

One should not have to install software to see its license and, in this
age of ubiquitous source hosting and rather evolved open source
development communities, one should not have to install software to see
its source either.

The doco links here are wrong:

http://rubyhitsquad.com/Vlad_the_Deployer.html

For example,

http://hitsquad.rubyforge.org/vlad/files/doco/getting_started_txt.html

should be

http://hitsquad.rubyforge.org/vlad/doco/getting_started_txt.html
