There is neither a court judgment or allegation of patent
infringement. Things may change quite rapidly as soon as he gets a
cease and desist letter, but the current situation---distributing
GPLed source (and binaries) which clearly infringes some software
patents--is common practice (even the FSF does it, see the networking
code in GNU libc, and GnuPG's crypto algorithms except Rijndael are
probably candidates as well).
