Reported by: spipeslee74 Owned by: lschiere
Milestone: Component: unclassified
Version: 2.4.2 Keywords:



my name is Roberto Cattaneo and I am a journalist at PC World Italy working with Alfredo Distefano, Editor in Chief.

We have selected Pidgin as one of the most interesting shareware/freeware, and we really would like to include it on PCW's covermounted discs (CD and DVD) and in the download area on PC World site (

In order to grant us the authorization to include your software into the next issues PC World's covermounted CD/DVD, you just need to respond to this e-mail. Your software will be included in each monthly issue (CD and DVD) of PC World Italy, until you stop the authorization to publish it.

We are also open to collaboration on covermounting for other your products.

Looking forward for your kind answer.

Thank you for your attention.

This is absolutely fine with us as long as you satisfy the requirements of the GPL license (specifically that you make the source code available for any binaries that you're distributing). Including the source tarball on your website is sufficient to satisfy this requirement. The FAQ on the FSF website has more information about the GPL license.

If you have any more questions, feel free to ask.
