I want to embed
libgit2 in my commercial application (here is license https://github.com/libgit2/libgit2/blob/master/COPYING) . I want to create static
libgit2 library, and link it with my commercial application. Is there any restrictions for my app? Something like - should I provide source code by user request? As I understand GPL v2 license states that. But license of libgit2 uses linking exception:
In addition to the permissions in the GNU General Public License, the authors give you unlimited permission to link the compiled version of this library into combinations with other programs, and to distribute those combinations without any restriction coming from the use of this file. (The General Public License restrictions do apply in other respects; for example, they cover modification of the file, and distribution when not linked into a combined executable.)
Can somebody make clear such situation, please? I am not laywer, and that license rules confused me.
