SubjectRe: GPL Violation of 'sveasoft' with GPL Linux Kernel/Busybox + code
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

| This would be perfectly okay provided the source code to the older
version
| is identical to the source code in the newer version for all the works
based
| on works that are GPL'd. So long as you can draw a line between the
old code
| and the new code, then this is acceptable. However, if there are
changes to
| GPL'd source code files, then those changes need to be given to anyone who
| receives binaries from those source code files. In that case, no line
can be
| drawn.

if that's the case, isn't it necessary to distribute the proprietary
parts separately (or vice-versa)? else those proprietary parts would
also be under the GPL.
