I’ve made a GPL-3 licensed app, the source code and binary releases of which are available on GitHub.
- Can I bundle the Pandoc and Pandoc-citeproc binaries with my app? These binaries are GPL-2 licensed.
- Can I upload these binaries to GitHub?
- Do I have to note anywhere in my app that I have bundled these binaries? (In the source code, in the user interface, or both?)
- If so, is there any common text that is used to notify users that a binary has been bundled with an app?
The license text for Pandoc reads:
This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
I’ve read some similar threads on this Stack Exchange, mostly about FFMPEG, but I just wanted to double-check to be on the safe side because my question is specifically about open source binaries in an open source package.
