Re: quick installer - distribution license

Hi Frank...

Like Bill said, you can rebundle the installer with your stuff...

Hi Frank,

The VisAD license if LGPL, which is very permissive.
What you want to do is no problem. I doubt that Tom's
installer adds any additional constraints?

Hey Tom,

One last question before the weekend: I'm thinking about packaging up my
jar for use within my lab, and possibly outside it too (though within the
same institution, for now at least). I don't see any obvious licensing
restrictions in your quick-install version, beyond the Jython license. Does
this mean that I can package the installer with my own files, and have
others install the whole shebang on their computers? Or should I just give
them my files, with instructions on where to find the quick-installer version?

Wanting to do the right thing....
