That's perfectly fine with the GPL (and with me).
>From the GPL2 license text:
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three

cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be
distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium
