Re-distributing your Application with OpenLX Linux Distribution

Dear Friend,

I am writing to you on behalf of OpenLX Linux distribution. Launched in 2005, OpenLX Linux has users in over 30 countries with over 2,00,000 downloads so far. OpenLX Linux is free to download and earlier versions are available at www.openlx.com The next version will also be available for free download from internet.

We would like to add your application ( GIMP 2.6.12 ) to the next version of OpenLX Linux.

Please let us know if there is any objection to this, or if it requires any agreement between you and us for doing this.

Thanks and best wishes,

Vivek Kumar Engineer - Linux Distribution.

Since GIMP is free and open source software (FOSS - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free_and_open_source_software ), under the GPL licence, you are allowed to distribute it as part of your distribution, as long as you make any downstream changes to the source code available.

Note that a new major version of GIMP - 2.8.0 will be released soon.

Regards,

Shlomi Fish

Hi Vivek,

If you really create a Linux distribution, the prerequisite is to know and understand GPL v3+ that GIMP is licensed under :)

And yes, it does allow redistribution.
