What about the source code? Does the Steam platform provide a way to

Not that I'm aware of.  If so, then I've not seen any software (gaming or
otherwise) take advantage of it.

Does a link to the sources in the
description (pointing to downloads section) suffice to comply
the GPL requirements?

I would say it does so long as binaries were built from said source code.
Since it is being distributed, any modifications made for said distribution
would need to be released (if there happened to be any).

Also, for those interested here's a link to Krita attempting Greenlight on

Also, I think GIMP project actually selling GIMP on Steam would be
beneficial.  It seems Krita will be doing that and it will be interesting
to see how it turns out.  I think it has the potential to turn into a nice
avenue of funding for the project (perhaps to also provide revenue large
enough for full time development).  Alas, I get ahead of myself and let's
just see what happens.
