Using eCos code in Cygwin
Wed Jan 21 20:09:00 GMT 2004
I've been working on integrating the full bind resolver into Cygwin and,
as such, have seen fit to use some code from eCos (specifically for
inet_ntop, inet_pton, & *ifaddrs). At the time I did this, it didn't
seem to be a problem, since the code was copyrighted by Red Hat.
However, I'm asking now in light of this announcement (which was sent in
the latest "Under The Brim"):
Is there anyway you could get an exception for Cygwin, since I'm almost
certain that Stallman & friends are going to convert everything from
BSD/Red Hat -> GPL (grrrr)? IANAL, so I thought it best to ask now,
before I go any farther. If not, I'll just go back to the drawing
board. Thanks in advance.
