Not source codes. But while the developer is working on a fix, GOG is also trying to get it working. And usually, they prefer to have it working before releasing it, so if it's a compatibility option that the developer didn't foresee, the customer can (hopefully) play while the developer is fixing it. Think of it as a "Until gamepad support is added to the game, you should be able to use Joy2Key to control it successfully. Here is a profile we succesfully used to play it. Once the developer updates the game, will upload the patch as soon as we can."
shmerl: OK, so you agree that for recent games GOG gets reports on bugs from GOG customers, and directs them to the developers. That's exactly what Humble Bundle does as well. I don't see any difference in context of Linux or Windows in this regard. Or you are saying that GOG also asks for sources from these developers to help debug these issues?
