Offer of GPLed Source Code

Formal Offer of Source Code

Parts of MEPIS products may incorporate GPL licensed binary code. In compliance with the GPL license for that binary code, MEPIS is required to redistribute the related source code, regardless of whether MEPIS has otherwise ever had possession of that source code. However, the GPL License may not compel MEPIS or anyone to violate applicable Laws.

MEPIS offers the source code for GPLed packages included on the SimplyMEPIS 6.0 CD and the SimplyMEPIS 6.0 Extras CDs, on 2 DVDs.

Q1. What is this GPL license all about?

Applicable Licenses

Some MEPIS products are collections of hundreds of software components and each component has it's own end user license agreement. Most of these components are released under an Open Source license agreement. The applicable agreements are usually available in the Linux directory tree at /usr/share/docs/package-name.
