[Glade-users] Software Licencing

Hypothetically, you could perhaps make the software open source, and just remove
the parts you don't want others to see. Instead, place those parts in your
own version of the compiler.
Of course, that would mean that noone could recompile the code, but you would
still make it open source.. right?

Please inform me.

My opinion is that security by obscurity only buys you time.  (I work
for a security firm.)

But no, you don't have to open source GTK developed applications.
