No, as a copyright license from the rights holder to the combining author, if and only if that author follows the GPL when
he copies and distributes the combined work.

"That argument simply doesn't hold water. Covenants to offer source
code in this and such a way are not "scope of license", they're
return consideration. The GPL is a true offer of bilateral contract.
And yes, I've read lots of unfounded assertions from the FSF and
others on the subject, and this and other arguments have been made
with a reasonable degree of skill on debian-legal, and I see no
reason to repeat them on d-d."
