"Maybe state what your software is / does and post the source code here so people can comment."
Confused.. why would I want to release my source code for a commercial product onto a forum?
What has all this got to do with the licensing issues. If it was debian then I have been told I can do all what I asked. But I do not know about Raspbian so thought I would post on this board.
I know there are strong feelings about Open Source code and If (for instance) I post a question on StackOverflow and I find the answer myself I always post my own answer for everyone else to see.
But I am not going to disclose my entire source code here and not sure why you asked me to do so unless you thought I was stupid in that regard?
Yes, it will be part of an embedded system and a service. To be run in kiosk mode on a linux chain.
Probably need to find another forum to post on..
Don't let the OSS zealots put you off. I'm all for this sort of thing. If you thnik someone is being overly agressive along these lines, feel free to use the report button.
WIth regard to distributing code, as long as you code does not use any GPL code then you can keep all the source to yourself. Using GPL libraries used to be a grey area, not sure what the current state is. Look up GPL2 and copy left licences. The distribution itself you will need to be able to point to the source code for everything in it (Linux itself is GPL2), if its unaltered Raspbian (i.e. you have simply added you own application code) then you can simply point to the Raspbian archive.
