Hi Sam,

address@hidden informed me that I must do the full surce offer type
stuf even on a loan/trial of a device with GPL binaries.

These may be useful, especially the last.  They're GPL V2 but even so...



Thanks Ralph, I'd not problem with all that.

The bit that was interesting is that while a vendor might give away full sources to customers, they must also give it away to potential customers, sort of negating the need for the customers to buy the product; and implying that what commercially is an "offer to provide a device" under GPL is deemed to have actually provided the software and entailed the obligations.

Anyway, I have no particular bone to pick on that, I merely find it "interesting"
