My understanding is that shared source is a look but don't touch arrangement...
Please correct me If I am wrong

I do like that range they give in the download size. Anywhere from 9 K to 1 Gig. :)

P.S. Link to a definition of Shared Source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shared_Source

does that mean that MC:2 is now free of charge? you can get the game for free (since you can compile your own version with the source, can't you)?

I think they are simply shareing the assets for the game in order for developers or game design students to examin how they approched makeing the game.

I guess it whould be entirely possible to combine all the assets together, but I'm not 100% if they whould allow all that documentation to be released for obvious reasons.
