I'm not convinced source code should be publicly released if someone's not willing to let people modify it. I could easily lie about the license and upload it to a popular source code repository, and we'd soon have a bunch of sites running Whiskey Media's framework illegally. And since the original source code would only be available to subscribers, it would be rather difficult to determine where it originally came from.
This was created by a small group of people and is still developed by mostly that same group of people. I'm not sure you'd be able to learn much from it anyway. If you really want to learn Django, you'd probably be better off starting from scratch or finding another Django site that makes itself available under a FLOSS license. If such a project really wants people to contribute and improve it, it will surely have some decent documentation.
If they really want to release the source code, great. But then I'd prefer a proper free license and at least some documentation, otherwise it would surely not be used by anyone else.
There are also quite a few sites out there (including the project site itself) that have made their source code available. Also #django von freenode is usually a good place if you have any questions. Stackoverflow from what I've seen so far also has a rather large Django community :-) That said, if you find anything that is not well documented, open a ticket.
