Often folks forget that there are both technical and non-technical reasons for taking courses of actions in software projects. A project need to do what it believes to be most appropriate.
As Howard notes, many software projects including the OpenLDAP Project ship only their source.
I note that here are both technical and non-technical reasons why a project might take such a course. For instance, lack of expertise in packaging for various platforms might be technical reason. Issues of legal liability might be a non-technical reason.
There are both technical and non-technical reasons behind the OpenLDAP Project practice to ship only source code to OpenLDAP Software.
