I want to reuse some LGPL'ed code in a commercial piece of software. Said code is here if you're particularly interested.
My questions are:
Can I do this ...
- Or, do I need to publish this concatenated code, under the LGPL, on (say) GitHub?
- Only if the rest of the code is LGPL'ed
And also, on a similar note, are those three possible if I later minify the code?
Personally, I feel that concatenating files doesn't really involve altering them as of such, so is probably within the spirit of the license. Minifying them is altering the source code, and in practical terms makes it harder to understand, so is against the spirit of the license. So, ethically, I wouldn't be happy with the latter even if it was OK in a legal sense. However, I want to go off facts, not feelings!
