It is still licensed software and as such is subject to the terms
of the license.  Unless and until it is specifically announced that
such terms are lifted, they should probably be considered in effect.
Meaning that you cannot legally use distributions that a friend
loans you.

I think the code is encumbered, so it may not be possible for Compaq
to 'release' it to the general public anyway...

But, I'm not a lawyer and I don't speak for Compaq, I just work
there (and used to work on Ultrix).
