[Glade-users] Creating Closed Source Software using Glade?

Thanks for your help!

I do think it might be helpful to add a note in the top of
http://glade.gnome.org/ to inform users that they can make open or closed
source applications with Glade.  This could be very similar to the GTK+
license description here: http://www.gtk.org/index.html

*"GTK+ is licensed under the GNU LGPL
development of both free and proprietary software with GTK+ without
any license fees or royalties.*"

Thanks again,

Results of my investigation so far:
1. I've found one website that suggests that libglade is LGPL -
http://freshmeat.net/projects/libglade/ , but nothing of this is linked
the website from Glade's website -
2. My understanding is that I could use Glade to create XML, which would
interpreted using the libglade. Would the XML created by Glade need to be
open source?

No, if you create an image with photoshop, does the created image
fall under the photoshop licence ? or is photoshop infringing on
any licence by opening and modifying a file ?

Using libglade means you are using an LGPL library, and therefore
does not infect the application with the licence.

I have this fresh on my mind since I am about to relicence the
core of the glade tool to LGPL, this will only mean that
commercial IDE's could use the Glade core without being
infected by the licence, but has no relevance to the generated
xml files.

Hope this answers your questions :)
