I saw a link to download the source, but I figured there would be some SCM link,
Google code, Bitbucket, Github... There may be an answer somewhere but I didn't
find one in a quick search.  Is there a reason the code isn't on Github.com?

The license, Nick, the license. You didn't read it for the version up to
3.6.2, did you ?

IMHO, Povray is a cathedral, not a bazaar.

I did not see the license...(people read those?  I thought they were like
EULA's)  Huh.  I don't read legalese well, Not sure why lawyers can't just speak
normal, So I guess I didn't see anything but explicitly says you can't put under
public scm.  But no matter, I don't need to understand, I was merely curious.

Ugh I had to Google the metaphor.

Precedence. Basically, at one point in time, a judge said "You win, because 
you said Yibba Yabbo Yo".  From then on, all the lawyers will use the same 
terminology.  That is, for example, why all the EULAs have the lack of 
warranty in UPPER CASE. Because at one point someone argued that they didn't 
notice it, and the judge said "How could you miss it? It was in upper case!"
