In defense of the Condor team here: Condor isn't open source. It's free,
but not open source. Not all free software is open source software.

http://www.cs.wisc.edu/condor/license.html says:

Starting with version 6.9.5, Condor is released under the Apache License, Version 2.0.

which is an open source license according to OSI (http://www.opensource.org/licenses/alphabetical ).

I remember hearing from some of the developers that the source would be available soon, but I guess it's not a priority for the team.
