Subject Re: OK to distribute some GPL licensed build tools?
Date Mon, 11 Jan 2016 01:37:54 GMT
Hi,

> Who says its OK? Unless approved by VP Legal it's not OK. 

It’s been discussed see [1][2][3[4]], note that is just for GPL with a specific exclusion
not ordinary GPL licenced software.

The exclusion states:
# As a special exception to the GNU General Public License,
# if you distribute this file as part of a program or library that
# is built using GNU Libtool, you may include this file under the
# same distribution terms that you use for the rest of that program.

But if you think this needs further discussion on legal just say so and I’ll take it there.

Thanks,
Justin
