I don't know what you mean by "valuable I[ntellectual] P[roperty]".
Do you think that the scripts that I found license-less are not
I really doubt they can be considered as uncopyrighted...
I would be very pleased to see every piece of software you use to manage
Debian security released in a DFSG-free manner...

What do you mean by "unpublished (but GPLed)"?
Do you have a copy and was it distributed to you under the GPL?
If this is the case, you can distribute it to anyone you like and even
If you do not have a copy, how can you know that it's GPLed?
Are you trusting someone else who received it under the GPL and told you
Isn't he/she willing to distribute it to you or to other people?
If not, why?
But it is also tradition that times *must* and always
do change, my friend. -- from _Coming to America_
