comment Must source code released under GPL be human-readable?
That said, it's meaningless to "slap a GPL sticker" on a work where you aren't providing usable source code, as in the nVidia example. You may as well have used a proprietary license. Clearly nVidia wanted to be seen as sharing their code without actually sharing their code.

comment Must source code released under GPL be human-readable?
It's worth noting that all restrictions in the GPL apply to licensees only. If the code is all your own work (you haven't re-used anybody else's open source code) then you yourself are not bound to any of the license terms you choose to apply to it when you distribute it to others - those are only for anybody who receives a copy of your work. This is how, for example, companies can dual-license a project as both GPL and a proprietary license.
