I am implementing an application that will be closed source. I used
prototype the GUI and used the Gnome extensions. Once the prototype was
finished, I wanted to make sure that everything was on the up-and-up
licensing and that I wouldn't be mis-using GPL code. With an ldd list of
libraries, I checked all of the licenses in /usr/share/doc to verify the
for each one. There was one library that was GPL - libesd.so. It seems
this library is bound, via gnome-config to all gnome/gnomeui programs. Once
I determined that, I dropped back to GTK (no Gnome) and replaced the only
Gnome widget that I had used (about-box) with my own code.
My question is this: Are the Gnome developer/packagers aware of this issue?
And if so, is there any plan to eventually have an environment whrere Gnome
can be used for closed source applications?
I tried searching the mail lists for some answer to this, but the search
work (at least today). I am currently using RedHat ELWS, but the
appears on RH8 and RH9.
