I suspect that patches carry the same licence as the code they apply to.

NeddySeagoon ... that's probably/possibly correct, but they are not distributed with those sources, and so are a seperate instance of "distribution". In terms of the GPL, I would expect the "[...] give any other recipients of the Program a copy of this License along with the Program" would need to be covered.

best ... khay
