I talked to Moxie in #whispersystems today.  He is *not* intending to
release either RedPhone or TextSecure under the terms of an open source
license.  He only means to make it available under the terms of a license
that allows *auditing* the source code.  I find that pretty
disappointing, but it's better (for security purposes) than just keeping
the source code entirely under wraps (as long as you trust him to use the
source you can actually audit in his distributed applications).
