Subject Re: [Graph2] nsUML license problem
Date Thu, 06 Feb 2003 08:06:19 GMT
Would it be possible to take an approach analagous to Ant's optional tasks?
That is, distribute the code that _uses_ the API, but not distribute the
library itself? Then, if anyone wants to use the nsUML library, they can go
and get it.

Based on what Ken posted, it looks like linking against a LGPL library is
OK, while distributing it is not.
