Licensing for academic computer labs at a university


Would it be possible to incorporate Cygwin into computer lab images for computer labs at an educational institution for academic use by students?

Would the source have to be included too if it was included on each hard drive of a lab workstation? (I'm talking about a pre-installed package--not a "setup" that students must run first.)

The FAQ mentions the full package itself is approximately 800MB--NOT INCLUDING the source code. If I were required to include the source code (even if it's still tarred and g-zipped), then does anyone know how much space would that require?

Does anyone have any recommendations? Is anyone currently doing this?

P.S. If anyone knows about other pre-packaged Cygwin installations out there that is geared toward "academic institution" use (pre-selected packages, etc), then please let me know. thanks.
