I see a lot of custom kernels, and no source code for any of them. That does indeed violate the GPLv2 License.
6. Do not post warez.
If a piece of software requires you to pay to use it, either pay or find your cracks and serials somewhere else. We do not accept warez nor do we permit any member to promote or describe ways in which Warez, cracks, serial codes or other means of avoiding payment, can be obtained.
This rule is specifically about warez. There is a rule somewhere about gpl, I'll get an answer for you.
