I hope I'm not going to ask something stupid here but...
The discussion is whether the distribution of GPLd program linked against a CDDL libc is compatable. The clause says "complete source code means all the source code for all modules it contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control compilation and installation of the executable". Whether the libc in this case falls under this is the point for debate.
My question is that clause 3 only says that this source code "must be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above" *not* that it must be distributed under the GPL or compatable licence.
Maybe clauses 1 and 2 are the only ones that cause a problem for the CDDL but it would be helpful if someone could clarify this for me.
