Yes it does.

"If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering
access to copy from a designated place, then offering equivalent
access to copy the source code from the same place counts as
distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not
compelled to copy the source along with the object code."

(Or rather, it does not allow not having the source on your own site.)

No, you can't, at least according to my reading of the GPL.

Neither am I AL.

You should still read and understand the license. That does not require
being AL.
