> says it's ok to link libreadline to LGPL or X-licensed code.
ahhh at least, another license flamewar at sight
libreadline is GPL:ed
if I get the paper right, you're allowed to link together module A
(LGPL) + module B (GPL), without A being immediately transformed as GPL...
(for sake of mind: A is current Wine, B is readline)
what's the license of module A+B, if you link them against a closed
source module C (for sake of mind being a proprietary software, ported
to Un*x using winelib) ?
can you use proprietary module (C) with A+B ? The answer seems to be no.
So, this cannot be used for winelib (as we allow proprietary source to
link against A)
so far Wine's policy has been to refuse to link against GPL for this
