Hi Sally, 

Selection of the Open Source option when publishing problems should make the 
source code viewable to anyone who is browsing Resource space and who has 
has selected his/her author role. Unfortunately viewing of source across 
domains does not currently work because of a bug (see 

Viewing of source will work however, within a domain, and I was able to 
successfully view source for problems in 
/res/vcu/sshunnic/CHEM304/assignment_02/ for which source had been set to 
baeavailable by using an author account I have in the VCU domain (created 
when I visited VCU in January).  It is important to note that the user must 
have selected the author role.  This may be the cause of the problem - if 
the Domain Coordinator is browsing while his role is Domain Coordinator, he 
should first switch to his author role.
