That has been a major part of why we haven't yet released the source - it
was very difficult (and actually impossible, in full form) outside of our
environment. The work to improve the build is mostly completed, and was 
the main holdup for Condor 6.6.0. 

At this point, we still have a few code improvements we want to make before
we release the source, mostly relating to the Condor Classad library. The 
version of Classads we currently use in our code has long been slated to be 
replaced, and that work is nearing completion. We very much prefer to wait
with our source release until this change is completed, because it will affect
every single part of Condor.

The bottom line is: we don't have a firm date the offical source release is 
going to happen.
