I can't say much about the legal situation of distributing downloads without forking/renaming the project first (or at all). I'd like to mention however that I use a 1.33 GHz G4 PowerBook with 2 GB RAM and a 256 GB SSD to build versions for my G3 and G4 Power Macs. This takes pretty much exactly 12 hours per build at full processor speed. I use the The Unofficial TenFourFox Toolkit on 10.4.
The issue isn't the source code, it's the TenFourFox name. I appreciate you being willing to offer this to others, but I don't want to be providing support for someone's third party build or causing others to expect I will be issuing further ones, and after a decade it's pretty clear the name is associated with me.
I can't stop you from releasing it under the TenFourFox name, but obviously I would not endorse it and I wouldn't provide any support for it. If you altered the source to use your own name for it (you could say it was derived from TenFourFox, but is not TenFourFox), then that would be fine, though you would still be responsible for distributing it. I wouldn't host it on our distribution network because we're still in some way responsible for it.
Again, though, I do appreciate you're willing to share, and if you do post a renamed build somewhere, I have no problem with you pointing people towards it.

Okay. I'm definitely not trying to get you into a bad situation. I can say that there's no support for it and name it something else. Use at your own risk, no warranty, don't blame me if it destroys your computer, etc..
