There are lots of regulated environments where the source code is
proprietary information not accessible outside of engineering. I guess
you're talking about environments where open source is part of the
regulation?

I've yet to work anywhere where the source code repository wasn't
separate from the distribution package repository. They were linked by
build scripts but no one outside of engineering had a login for the
source system.
