mmm,

Quiet confusing: :?

As seen on freshmeat:

License :: Freely Distributable , OSI Approved :: GNU General Public License (GPL)

The gentoo linux license on freshmeat says - Freely Distributable
now can we know whats freely distributable and whats gpl in gentoo ?

Is portage GPL or not ?

Can we know whats the property of Gentoo Inc and whats public ??

just a lil curious chap ;-) who doesnt like M$

All of Gentoo freely distrubutale so long as you follow the terms of the GPL. Gentoo [bold]does not[/bold] include the software packages themselves.

  • The ebuilds are property of Gentoo unless stated otherwise, and are all under the GPL
  • Portage is under the GPL and is the property of Gentoo.
  • Software packages belong to whoever wrote them and are distributed per their own license
  • And Linux is a trademark of Linus Trovalds :wink:

Of course IANAL and I could be wrong.
