Apple cuts off under 18 developers?

Finlay Dobbie has been a leading contributor to the Darwin project, most
notably helping track down the infamous PPP-hang bug. He's been nominated
to become a Darwin contributor (which comes with limited check-in
privileges) but when going through the process, Apple found out he's under
18 years old, and not only refused to let him be a contributor to this
'open source' project, but canceled his Apple Developer Connection
membership (which gives him download access to the source code) on the
grounds that because he's under 18, he can't be legally bound to the
small-print agreement."
