Word of Advice, sources need to be available

Post#1 by Tonio » 30 Dec 2010, 04:14

Dear folks,

I am sorry to bring this up, but this is very important. Sources used to make our OS need to be made available. This is very important, why? We need to honor the GPL. Just ask Quax and he can give advice. Otherwise, haters out there could complain and this would not be something to look for. IANAL but have seen this happening taking a look at Distrowatch. Some distros were enjoying success, then came along accusations of GPL noncompliance. It is just an FYI, we need to be on the lookout for manythings.

Thanks Tonio. All sources are slackware current. For initrd i have a google code storage account we can point to. When the website is done we will have an information page that keeps everything transparent.

You're right, there are alot of GPL police out there.
How do i become super user?
Wear your underpants on the outside and put on a cape.
