I am planning to use the cygwin1.dll in a project for a customer who
does not allow the publishing of their own source codes. I do not want
to discuss the brilliance of this rule here. But AFAIK the licensing
model for the free version of cygwin (GPL) would require exactly that
(publishing all source code that makes use of the cygwin1.dll ... right?)
So I need to at least evaluate where I could get a commercial license
for cygwin1.dll from and at what price. I have tried to contact the
redhat sales channels in various ways, but never got a reply whatsoever.
While this mailing list might not be primarily concearned with this
issue, I am hoping that someone might be able to give me a hint/contact
where to start asking. Perhaps even a rough idea about the price. I
really need no support or anything. All I want is the right to
distribute a proprietary SW-application and cygwin1.dll as part of that.
I am happy to supply the cygwin source-tarballs also, but I can't supply
the proprietary code that makes up the rest of the app.
Any comment is highly appreciated. Thanks,
H. Henning Schmidt
