This is off-topic.
I've been wondering about Ruby applications released under the GPL. What does it exactly mean?
The GPL was supposed to apply to software that was explicitly built into the same executable with a GPL licensed software. That is tougher to understand for web software. I guess you could argue that if you use a controller/ view, you must then release the modified file in source code to people who are your customers under the GPL license.
But, it does not make sense for a stylesheet or something, does it? If I want to use a stylesheet from a GPL project, what are my obligations? It doesn't make sense to release the source code of my application because of that.
Just wondering what you think.
