I think you have misunderstood this. GPL offers options: either you 
distribute the source code when you distribute the binaries - which 
should not be problem because you are already distributing data anyways 
- OR you give a written offer to distribute the source code to anyone 
who asks.

If you add the source code to the distribution memory stick or cd or 
whatever, you are free from other obligations.
