Most of the distributors nowadays are providing those "offers" as URLs with source code downloads, so this is only academic discussion without any sense in reality. Have you seen anyone providing written offer in any other way in last 5 years?
They are obligated to fulfill the offer,
but there is no time limit to **when** they fulfill the offer.
The reality is that I made a statement which you questioned.
I am only defending my own statement.
The terms of the license does not say "when" (they have to provide you with the source code <- which was the context to the post I replied to).
Attempts to divert the topic will not lessen my defense of my statement.
