what is the reason that the build service is closed, so it is not
possible to see sources without logging in?

This is due to load reasons in first place. However, it would be possible to
create read-only mode pages for everything, but it would be bad if plenty
people do download lots of source via api.opensuse.org.

May I recommend a simple solution: a caching reverse proxy.
Can be done e.g. with squid or apache.

however, it is really easy to get an account, so it is relative wide open
already ;)

Accounts are nice for developers. Users are not interested in an
account like that.

Just as I don't make accounts for myself in dozens of other systems, I
don't expect the average interested user to create accounts just to look
things up. (And I'm even a developer.)

I'm talking about transparency here, and visibility.

Things that should be natural, IMO.
