Source Code of All Models (including the screen saver) :

Made avalable via a .torrent file @ screen saver directory level (next to the executing climate model) ... so that one can use the torrent file to eventually view the source code of all of the climate models and screen saver.

One should be able to choose to download this file via the options page where you choose what climate models you want to run.

Putting the source code on GITHUB or SOURCEFORGE would be OK too ... no harm in that.

The current mostly closed source model is somewhere between not a good idea and utterly reprobate.

In the 2000s "BIG DATA" is helped by having an open source model.

The UK Met Office owns the code. It's commercially sensitive and commercial valuable.

So this is NOT going to happen.

PS
If you think that "open source" is the way to go, then unhide your computers so that we can all see what they're doing.
