Hi Folks,

we have a shiny new linux_base based on the Slackware distribution in 
ports/104680. The only problem is with this, that Slackware people 
distribute some binaries in ext2fs floppy images. We would like to avoid 
using such, because that would need some kernel module trick in the port 
and that is very difficult to handle. The question is that can we 
extract and provide these binaries in a simple tar.gz file or is that 
considered a GPL/LGPL violation? The sources are freely available on 
slackware.com, but we are not sure doing so is legally correct. What do 
you think about this?

Thanks in advance,
Gabor
